Warning/Disclaimer: The below stories and pictures are graphic, but true. Please proceed with caution and know that this story is one that needs to be shared so we can FIGHT for these children.
“So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.” Matthew 10:27
As she closes her eyes tightly, her young mind is filled with confusion. Her fear is great and her pain is greater. Laying on the cold, dirty concrete floor…rats run by as once again her belly is empty…
Her mind runs through the faces of all of the people who have come to visit…but yet things stay the same…little food to eat because it is being sold, continuous beatings, neglect, abuse…
Hearing this child scream as I helped clean her 13 day old wound is a sound and a sight that I will never forget. The pain, the fear, being trapped, not being able to share what happened…
And this poor baby’s burns are just one of the MANY cases of physical abuse and neglect. Now, what has been said in the DARK is being revealed in the Light…and what has been Whispered for so many years, NEEDS to be proclaimed from the Housetops! (Matthew 10:27)
There are over 75 children in Son of God orphanage in Carrefour, Haiti. This orphanage is full of abuse, physical, sexual, emotional. Full, FULL of trafficking. Child trafficking (which one of the directors of the orphanage is now in jail for) and organ trafficking. Yes, ORGAN trafficking. Officials have been able to track organs back to this orphanage. Children’s organs.
But this is JUST the beginning.
I, along with so many others, have witnessed terrible things at this orphanage and been fighting for these children for more than a year…There are too many stories about Son of God and these children to share in one blog…but how many more stories need to be shared before we say…Enough is Enough…Please, Help be these children’s voice.

Thank you Megan for telling this difficult and heartwrenching story! We love these children and we will continue to fight for them and the many others until justice is served.
We will continue to pray for these dear children that God loves so much. thanks for being there and being their voice. We need to know more and more about the horrible things that are happening to children and others around the world. Always remember that you can not save them all but all He asks, is to do is what we can, and you are doing that.
Megan, I am praying for these kids as well as for you- your voice shares their story- and I share your voice with my church as well as on facebook. May the POWERFUL Spirit of God fall upon this place- may God’s Spirit of justice be felt in the lives of these kids as well as the power of His love. May Gods Holy Spirit continue to empower you to do His work.
Thank you for sharing. We have been and seen what is going on at Son of God, glad that it has at last come to light and at least the children may have a chance of freedom.
Thank you, Father, for using Megan to share Your Life. Please continue to be her strength and light through the darkness as she shares the stories and events with friends and supporters around the world. And thank You for social medias which help to keep us all connected to support our brothers and sisters!!!! Amen!
Megan, Thank you for being on the frontline for these kids. I have been to Son of God twice in the last year and fell in love with the kids there. My heart breaks and my soul is stirred to know that the abuse continues. We will spread the word and will continue to pray that God’s light shines through the darkness.
Megan, I too have visited the Sons of God Orphange. I have photos of children that ached for love the minute you walked in. As I sit hear crying thinking that still nothing has been done my heart is heavy. I wish I could do more and wonder what more can I do. I pass on the news to all that I know and pray but still feel as if this is only a small thing. Thank you for being there and sharing with the world what is happening to these children… I pray no more children are hurt before someone finally takes action.
This is awful. Thank you for writing and sharing your experiences and the pictures. I just blogged about this and am spreading the word to journalists I know.
Megan, God bless you and your work at Son of God and Gressier. I too have witness the horrid living conditions at this so-called orphanage and the images I saw there are forever on my heart.
I was reading Isaiah 58 and immediately thought of you and Josh. I later received an e-mail telling me about your latest blog entry. Please be strengthened by the following:
“and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.
The Lord will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins
and will raise up the age-old foundations;
you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
Restorer of Streets wtih Dwellings.
You can count on my signature and my prayers.
No chid should live in hell on earth
This is awful thank you for sharing!
I’m in. Shouting for change.
Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. ~Anne Lamott
I hope you draw strength from knowing that you do not stand alone. When things seem overwhelming, be encouraged to know that there are so many praying for you and these beautiful children…their story is being shared and justice will come. They have captured our hearts.
Thank you for the information we can share with our friends.
I am praying daily for the children and the orphanage, that God will move them just like he moved the children of Israel out of their bondage. God bless you for the work you are doing. It is hard for me to see those pictures after having been in Haiti and holding some of the younger children and playing with some of the older ones. God please move those children.
I am against this treatment
Son of God orphanage was closed this morning. PRAISE GOD! Many kids are still missing. Please continue to pray, everyone.
God bless you Megan, stay strong, stay alive in his spirit.
This just breaks my heart when I hear about all this stuff.
