An Important Message From Danita Estrella Watts

Founder & CEO

Dear Danita’s Children Family, 

I know you may be worried about the children you have supported so faithfully at Danita’s Children. First, I want to reassure you. Right now the children we serve are unaffected by the coronavirus, COVID-19. We are praying that this virus does not affect our work, our children, or our staff members. We ask that you also join us in this prayer. 

But despite all the fear and chaos, I want to reassure you of one thing. Our mission here at Danita’s Children is not changed by any virus. We are still supplying medical care and education and housing to children in desperate need. We are still stepping in to help children who have no other hope. 

We have not stopped providing services in the face of this pandemic because we know the children of Haiti need our help now and more than ever. Instead, we have added measures to keep our children safe and to make sure we have the oxygen tanks, food, water, and supplies we need to face the next month. We are making hand sanitizer and limiting visitors to the hospital. 

These steps may make our work more difficult, but our commitment to save these children has not changed; they still need us. I am asking you to not change your commitment to help these children either. They still need your help. We still can’t do this without you. 

Today, like every other day, I will spend my time ensuring that as many children as possible have the resources and support they need to thrive, virus or no virus. Thank you for your continued support and prayers in this uncertain time. We are keeping you in our prayers. 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” – Phil 4:6-7 NIV

May God bless you and keep you safe, 


What is Child Sponsorship?

Sponsorship is a relationship. When you sponsor a child through Danita’s Children, you are changing a life. As their sponsor, your generous gift will provide the basic necessities they need to support a healthy life. Your monthly sponsorship gift of $35 provides the following:

  • Quality education
  • Nutritious food
  • Medical care
  • Housing for the orphans
  • Special Needs care

Spiritual mentorship that provides them an understanding of their true identity in Christ.

The decision you make today will positively change the life of a child living in poverty forever. Through your sponsorship, we are able to care for the next generation of Haiti. We invite you to be a part of raising up these future leaders and together, we can change Haiti one child at a time.

Danita Estrella Watts

When Danita was 11 years old, her father took her to Haiti on a mission trip. She never dreamt that 25 years later, she would pack her bags and move to Haiti by herself with nothing but a promise from God: “Go and I will be with you.” So, without a job or a fail-safe plan, and just a $200 monthly commitment from her church, she packed her bags and moved to Haiti.
