A marriage and family therapist in High Point, North Carolina, Jayne Lessard has treated patients for more than 25 years. In addition to her professional responsibilities, Jayne Lessard has served as an overseas staff counselor with Samaritan’s Purse and has taken missions to countries such as Niger and Liberia.
For more than 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has served as a non-denominational Christian organization that assists people who are in pain around the world. Following the teachings of Jesus Christ, this group travels to different countries to aid those affected by natural disasters, war, disease, and more.
One of Samaritan’s Purse’s most notable successes is the Greta Home and Academy in Leogane, Haiti. It is named after FOX News’ Greta Van Sustren, who became a powerful advocate for Haitians following the country’s devastating earthquake of 2010. Providing discipleship courses and other academic programs, the Greta Home and Academy offers Haitian orphans and other vulnerable children the opportunity to go to school and become strong Christian leaders.
Presently, 73 children from the ages of 2 to 16 are students at the Greta Home and Academy, where they can stay in its dormitory-style bedrooms and participate in morning and evening prayer services.
