Java Relief is a special kind of coffee retailer. We sell high quality coffee that's fresh roasted, on demand. What makes us unique is that we are a volunteer company and 100% of our profits go directly to children at risk. Our hearts have been broken seeing the overwhelming need and sadness of so many of these children. Whether they are orphans, slave or sex-trafficked victims, or simply living in an unsafe and impoverished environment. We feel it is our God-given task to fight for these children — to provide meals, clothing, education and better homes.

We Sell Amazing Fresh Roasted Coffee to Give Hope to Children At Risk

Java Relief is a special kind of coffee retailer. We sell high quality coffee that's fresh roasted, on demand.
What makes us unique is that we are a volunteer company and 100% of our profits go directly to children at risk. 

We've searched the world over to find coffee that tastes great and helps fund Fair Trade small coffee businesses. Most of our coffee is 100% organic. This coffee not only tastes amazing, it will warm your heart!

 

Java Relief is continuing to search for organic, fair trade, high altitude Arabica, specialty grade coffee beans. See what we discovered in the mountains of Haiti.

You can help victims of sex trafficking by providing resources and restoration services to these girls.

You can provide hope for these orphans in India by partnering in building orphanages for them

 

Together, we can give hope to these children. These aren't just pictures. They're real children. Around the world, children are living in extreme neglect and poverty. The children we support in Africa, Haiti, Honduras, India and here in the USA need food, education, medical care, shelter, freedom from sex trafficking and the knowledge that someone cares. Our hearts are broken over the needs of these children. We feel that it is our calling to help them.

Java Relief Back Packs and school supplies.jpg

Backpacks full of happiness!

Wow, what a great trip to Cité Soleil, Haiti! We were able to visit the Luken Foundation campus as the children wrapped up their 3-month long “summer camp”.

They were dressed in their finest as they enjoyed a celebration to say goodbye to summer and hello to the new school season. We danced, had times of sharing, ate a meal together and gave backpacks full of school supplies to the 76 children that the Luken Foundation is now sending to school.

Thanks to one special couple who rounded up all of the backpacks and school supplies! What a blessing!


Washing-Machine2.jpg

Look what washed up in Port-au-Prince!

We visited the Faith in Action Orphanage in Port-au-Prince Haiti and were stunned at how much laundry they do by hand! With 26 children and a few adults, that is a ton of laundry!

So, thanks to you, we bought them a washing machine!

The biggest blessing was that the Jehovah Rapha House - another orphanage we support, also needed a washer. The money we thought would buy one washer ended up to be anough to buy two!

Feeling double blessed!


Propane-Stove.jpg

Clean Cooking in Cité Soleil.

Can you imagine cooking for over 220 children on charcoal? Not only does it take a lot of time, but it isn't heathy to be breathing in smoke day after day.

Java Relief was thrilled to provide a brand new $1,200 propane stove system for the Luken Foundation. This will make life a whole lot easier for the women of Cité Soliel who tirelessly cook for these hungry children. Thank you Java Relief coffee supporters for making this happen!

Chill Out Pastor Cenor!

Pastor Cenor runs an orphanage with 24 orphans in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. He showed us his broken-down freezer and refrigerator. He told us, "We have no way to keep anything cold for the children. No milk, no meat. Plus our washing machine is broken."

Great news! Together with the financial help of the Waconia-West Carver Rotary Club, and profits from coffee sales, we were able to purchase a brand new freezer, refrigerator and washing machine for them. What a blessing!

It's Table-rrific!

Thanks to just one generous coffee drinker, 50 tables were built and painted for the Luken Foundation school/homework area in Cite Soliel! There are 75 children now going to school from this slum. These tables are so great for these kiddos!

Fueling Their Future

Java Relief is providing breakfast for 50 struggling teens for the month of December.
Java Relief met with the team at Waconia Learning Center where 40-55 teens may struggle with depression, anxiety, drug abuse, poor living conditions, probation, pregnancy, foster care, things that can make it difficult to attend high school. We think they are heros, because they have to work harder and overcome more to get to school everyday and get that diploma. They are fighting for a real chance at life!

Pastor-Dares-Kids.jpg

Abandoned, Evicted, Rejected. Blessed!

As Haitians continued to abandon disabled children at the hospital, Pastor Dare's wife knew she needed to do something so she started bringing the children home and eventually quit nursing to care for them. Today the Dares are caring for 29 disabled children.

Update: Because of you, the campaign to raise money for a home in Haiti for special needs orphans, has been a huge success! Thanks to you, Java Relief sent $4000 to Don Shire Ministries which runs Jehovah Rapha House! We are amazed how many of you were moved by their story and wanted to help, and we are thankful.

Taina Before and After2.jpg

Taina's surgery was a success!

She is so beautiful! Thank you Java Relief customers and donors!

With all of your help, Java Relief was able to send $2,500 to Don Shire Ministries to help with the cost of Taina’s surgery. She is from the poorest slum in the Western Hemisphere.

This surgery has changed her life and giving her hope for the future.

God bless you!


A new wheelchair for Marksony

Marksony got a new set of wheels!

Thank you Java Relief customers and donors!

Can you imagine trying to survive and have hope in a place that is considered the most impoverished and dangerous slum in the western hemisphere? Now try it with a life confined to a wheel chair. That's how Marksony lives his life in Cite Soleil, Haiti.

We are blessed and thankful that we were able to brighten Marksony's day with a gift of a shiny new red wheelchair.

We couldn't have done this without you!

This kind of Press is almost as good as our Cold Press!

Did you see our article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune newspaper? We were really excited to have this opportunity to share!

Story behind the picture: Our dental team was working at a church in Port Au Prince. Brandy walked around the side of the building and noticed this little boy, Givens, playing by himself. She started playing ball with him and they ended up having a great time with lots of giggles. At one point Steve put little Givens on his shoulders. It was at that point, Givens decided he needed to go potty...Steve got a little wet! This little boy left a footprint on our hearts. We will never forget him!
