what we do



Since 1996, the Friends of Fort Liberte has been closely involved in the building and development of the King Orphanage. It was started in an old building and renovated with funds given after the passing of the founder, J.D. King. Beginning with just 10 children, the orphanage has at times been home to as many as 50 kids. Involvement in the development of the orphanage and relationships with the children growing up there has been near to the hearts of the visiting U.S. groups. We feel the responsibility to house, feed, nurture and educate these children who had little hope and no family of their own.

You can also help by making a donation to the Orphanage Fund, helping to co-sponsor orphans, contributing to orphanage general operations or by giving to enrichment, food and educational programs. For more information, contact Orphanage Chairman, Clair Peyton at


After the earthquake of 2010, we felt an overwhelming need to build a new and safer facility for the orphans. The U.N. helped us tear down the oldest of the two buildings that housed the children, and we are currently working on the construction of a beautiful, earthquake-proof orphanage. That work is the focus of many of the visiting teams. If you would like to contribute to this work, you can make a donation to the Orphanage Construction Fund.
