Family Care Haiti
Delmas 75 rue Castagnole, impasse Etoile #3 Port au Prince, Haiti
Family Care Haiti was founded by Fritz and Magalie Desir in 2013. Fritz was born in Port-a-Prince and was raised in Port-a-Prince and Jacmel, Haiti. He lived with his mother and stepfather until the age of 9 at which time he moved to Jacmel to live with his grandmother. He returned to Port-a-Prince 6 years later with his mother to live in Cite Soleil, one of the most poverty-stricken slums in the entire world.
Surrounded by hopelessness and despair, God began to work in Fritz’s life birthing compassion for orphans. As a young man, Fritz moved to the Delmas section of Port-a-Prince to live with his cousin and start his adult life. He worked his way through school and successfully completed his high school program.
During these years, Fritz learned how to survive extreme hardships.
Not only were his entrepreneurial skills developed, but his faith was also tested and strengthened preparing him for a lifetime of service for the Lord. At the age of 30, God sent an American Christian to provide support for him to attend YWAM, Youth With a Mission Bible School in Haiti. God then led Fritz to work with a new orphanage in Port-a-Prince. During the next 9 years, he successfully oversaw the day-to-day operations of the 50-child orphanage. Once again, God was facilitating Fritz to help the starving children of Haiti. The first and primary passion of Fritz and Magalie is to teach and show the love of Jesus Christ and bring orphan children of Haiti to a saving knowledge of the Lord.
