Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime”–Lao Tzu

The Light of Life Foundation (LLF) is a vocational program dedicated to train the mentally and physically disabled. The program’s task is to help them assimilate into the workforce and become self sufficient citizens. Our mission is to improve their social and economic conditions by providing the knowledge and tools necessary to succeed. Many of the Haitian disabled are often socially rejected because the country lacks the resources to educate and help them function in society. Their source of survival often relies on international donations such as food and clothing. Many of these individuals have the intellectual capability to obtain a job and sustain a decent way of life; this is why our organization is devoted to help them become more independent. With the help of our services a blind woman was able to secure a position as a receptionist at the Department of Social Services, now she is able to support herself and some members of her family.

It has become increasingly difficult for The Light of Life Foundation to continue to provide all of the services that are needed due to increasing costs. and the current economic environment. I feel so strongly about this organization’s work that I’m reaching out to everyone to request financial support for the association.

Any amount you can share will be put to good use, and used towards a valuable cause. Your gift will make it possible for The Light of Life Foundation to continue providing assistance to mentally and physically disabled people who wouldn’t have anywhere to turn for assistance without the services provided by the organization. If you are interested in helping with this magnificent project, or have any questions, feel free to contact me at (212) 433-0750. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
