Second of Michael Geilenfeld’s orphanages shut down by Haiti authorities.

IMG_1124

Trinity House is the second of Michael Geilenfeld’s orphanages to be shut down by Haiti authorities.

The St. Joseph’s Home for Boys in Port au Prince was closed by Haiti authorities almost three weeks ago, on November 5th.

Promo from web site:

The St. Joseph Family is now in it’s 30th year of continuous operation in Haiti, and has graduated over 105 boys into adulthood and independent living. All three of the St. Joseph Family homes are now being managed and led by men who were once SJF children, rescued off the streets of Haiti, and provided with an opportunity for a better life. Lead Servant for Mission Maya Fond-Rose, Bill Nathan (St. Joseph Home for Boys), Jacky Asse (Wings of Hope Home) and Daniel Jeanmary (Trinity House) are all living testaments to the power and success of the St. Joseph Family’s mission work.

IGNATIUS GROUP___

SUCCESSFUL CHILD PROTECTION INTERVENTION IN HAITI.

Children are safer today in Haiti because of an unprecedented amount of publicity and information surrounding the legal action taken against a child protection activist by multi-accused child molester, Michael Geilenfeld.

Word has spread like never before.

1) Geilenfeld’s orphanage, the St. Joseph Home for Boys in Port au Prince, is padlocked and shut down per order of Haitian authorities.

2) An arrest warrant has been issued. Haitian National Police are searching for Geilenfeld in response to new allegations of child sex abuse against him. Geilenfeld remains in hiding.

3) Donors to Geilenfeld and Hearts with Haiti are being updated and informed of new child sexual abuse allegations being brought against Geilenfeld.

4) The general public is not stupid. They cannot understand how and why a Maine jury did not believe the seven Haitian men who put their personal safety on the streets of Port au Prince at great risk to testify at the trial about their horrific child sexual abuse by Geilenfeld when they were children living in Haiti.

5) Education and awareness about child sexual abuse has increased in Haiti because of Geilenfeld.

6) Increased media attention is focused on Geilenfeld’s ongoing appeals trial and the current warrant for his arrest.

7) Hearts with Haiti has removed Geilenfeld from its Board of Directors.

8) Geilenfeld will never be employed in a job that provides him with access to children in any other organization than North Carolina based 501(c)(3), Hearts with Haiti.

IS HEARTS WITH HAITI MISLEADING AND DECEIVING  DONORS?

TEN DAYS AGO, HAITI AUTHORITIES PADLOCKED THE DOORS AND CLOSED THE ST. JOSEPH’S HOME FOR BOYS IN PORT AU PRINCE.

HAITIAN INVESTIGATORS ARE LOOKING INTO NEW ALLEGATIONS OF SEXUAL ABUSE AGAINST ORPHANAGE DIRECTOR, MICHAEL GEILENFELD, WHO REMAINS A FUGITIVE FROM JUSTICE.

CHILD PROTECTION ADVOCATES WANT TO KNOW WHY HEARTS WITH HAITI, A NORTH CAROLINA BASED 501(C)(3) THAT PROVIDES FUNDING FOR THE ST. JOSEPH’S HOME FOR BOYS, IS NOT INFORMING DONORS OF THE ORPHANAGE’S CLOSING AND THE ISSUANCE OF A WARRANT SEEKING MICHAEL GEILENFELD’S ARREST.

IT’S BUSINESS AS USUAL ON THE HEARTS WITH HAITI WEB SITE:

“The young people in the care of the St. Joseph Family come from some of the most desperate conditions in Haiti, with no support network and often dim prospects for survival.  Under the direction of Bill Nathan and Walnes Cangas (both SJF alums), St. Joseph’s Home for Boys is the center of this mission and the young men who reside here have, since entering the SJF, demonstrated the most significant leadership, success in their studies, and propensity for artistic achievement.”

Haiti police detain US citizen on orphan abuse charges

Michael Karl Geilenfeld was arrested on Friday and taken to custody

September 6, 2014

By Joseph Guyler C. Delva

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (HCNN) — Haitian police, under the authority of the capital’s top prosecutor, arrested and detained on Friday a US citizen accused of abusing children, housed in an orphanage he founded years ago, in the Caribbean country, officials say….

“I have waited for too long…too long, while the children suffered from this wily horrible man….nobody listening to them. Pray now for the abused of the last thirty years. I had tried to notify visitors to the orphanage through Trip Advisor. “
