Michael's House


Michael's House is Changing lives – right now

Michael’s House Inc. is a non-profit grassroots organization that serves the elderly poor in the developing world who have become invisible, who receive no funds from government organizations or other large aid foundations. It is through gifts that they now have a face and dignity in their daily lives. We bring aid to the lives that others have deemed hopeless.

Photos and Comments from Rwanda

Photos from Butare, Rwnanda and the elderly that Michael's House helped with your donations. The joy of these elderly was indescribable. The comments by those receiving mattresses were especially poignant as some weep for joy:
"I can not imagine the kind of sleep I will sleep tonight and the rest of my life in a blanket on a mattress”” ....read more


Our founder, Michael Craig, provides his perspective on the difference between being poor, which many of have been at some time in our life, and the destitute elderly in developing countries. See the article here


"We have made a commitment to hundreds of destitute elderly in third world countries who will fall between the cracks if we don't help them. We cannot renege on our promise. It is absolutely not an option.

During the current economic world crisis, the immediate need for Michael's House is to be able to continue to support our current daily expenses; food, shelter, pensions, medicines and surgeries. Recently, we have experienced a decrease in our donations at a time when the need and the cost of food in the countries we serve has increased dramatically to the point of catastrophe.

We desperately need your continued financial support so that we will be able to perform these daily "miracles' to support the most indigent of the world's elderly population.

Please give whatever you can afford and help us also by introducing our unique projects to your church, friends or workmates.

Volunteers from Michael's House Inc. are available to make a presentation to your group if it would help." - Michael Craig, Founder
