New Beginnings in 2023

Time to Plant

New Year is a Time to Sow

Happy New Year from everyone at Feed My Lambs Orphanage and Academy in Haiti.

Last year presented our village (and indeed all of Haiti) with many challenges, and with your help and God’s good graces, we have managed to keep our gardens growing, our school open, our children fed and our team working hard. It is time to plant now, and the children and staff are busy getting the garden ready. Many volunteers from Bermuda, including well-known local farmer Tom Wadson, created the gardens, irrigation and plumbing that has really made a difference.

The political situation continues to be volatile in Haiti, thus preventing us from planning any mission trips with volunteers. There are many challenges facing organisations and NGOs trying to help there, send containers or funds. We have been able to assist only as and when the situation allows, and are fortunate that our staff members in Haiti are so resilient and resourceful. Phillip Rego, Feed My Lambs Ministry’s founder, plans to visit Haiti as soon as possible, and he hopes to be in a position to invite a few others to join him to assist with solar panel repairs, plumbing, and much-needed general assistance at the Feed My Lambs village in Montrouis (pronounced “monwee”).


The website has a new url now, and is https://feedmylambsministry.com (formerly .org). We were unable to get our regular newsletter out for the past few months and are thrilled to be back up and running again.

Our Academy

Feed My Lambs Academy has as many as 700 students attending in a given day. Many walk for miles from nearby villages in the hills to come to school and enjoy a lunch. Student sponsorship at $252 per year provides a uniform, shoes, backpack, books and lunch for the children. The only paid staff are those in Haiti who run the school (headmaster, teachers) and the orphanage (manager, cooks, security and helpers). If you wish to sponsor a child please email dianabermuda@icloud.com or contact Maria or Phillip at feedmylambsministry@gmail.com.

University Students – medical training

Many former orphanage children and/or sponsored students are now in University in Port au Prince, studying subjects ranging from agriculture to education to mechanical and engineering and medicine. All of them wish to return to Feed My Lambs Ministry’s village to give back to the community that provided them with such opportunity in this impoverished land.

Thank you for your help in 2022 and for helping us sow the seeds to reap in 2023
