Earthquake Devastates St. Joseph Home in Port au Prince

Broken Wings is the Canadian fundraising organization whose primary mission is to support the vision and ministry of the St. Joseph Family in Haiti, which includes the St. Joseph’s Home for Boys in Port-au Prince, Wings of Hope in Fermathe, and Trinity House in Jacmel.

Orphans caring for orphans: a beautiful story

St. Joseph’s Home for Boys was Michael Geilenfeld’s dream that became a reality in 1985, bringing boys off the streets of Port-au-Prince to provide them with a Christian home and family.

When French missionaries announced they were leaving Haiti and needed to find care for the disabled children under their supervision, Michael took some of the older boys from St. Joseph's to choose a child to bring home and care for. But the boys surprised Michael when they chose to adopt all the children. Wings of Hope had become a thriving home for disabled children, recently rebuilt and expanded to include a day school for disabled community children and lovely guest facilities.

jen lee's 'soul' fine art print

"Do you believe in soulmates?"
I ask him now.
"I don't know," he says, 
and maybe this is why I like him:
I don't know, either.

~ Jen Lee, Fortunes

Soul is an original Diana+ image by photographer Jen Lee, and appears in her book Fortunes. It features multiple exposures and vibrant colors from cross-processing. The distinctive Diana+ 35mm image spills across the sprocket holes. This fine art print, on Kodak Professional Endura paper, arrives in a cello envelope with cardboard backing. Image is square, with a white border.

Jen Lee is a Brooklyn-based writer and a collector of stories, many of which unfold in her vibrant neighborhood or in the lives of her closest friends. A performer in NYC's storytelling scene, Jen is also the author of Fortunes and Take Me With You: A Journal for the Journey. (photo by Susannah Conway.)
