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.

a photography session with quadelle -- either in melbourne Australia, toronto ontario, or Nova Scotia


Enjoy spending time with your favourite people and Quadelle will follow with her camera to capture laughs, energy, and personalities. The session can be done in Melbourne, Australia in the near future, or in Nova Scotia in June or July (or even downtown Toronto in mid-June). Quadelle will gear the session to capture the kinds of images you are most interested in having from the day. Within three weeks of the session you will receive a CD of high-resolution images which you can print or share freely.

Quadelle rarely strays far from her camera and loves the beauty of everyday moments. Quadelle is looking forward to having an extended visit with family and friends in Nova Scotia, and as much as she loves her husband's Australian accent, she is wildly hopeful that the visit will be long enough for her children to sound even a bit more Canadian.

All proceeds from items sold on the To Haiti with Love auction go directly to the St. Joseph's Family in Haiti.
