MAKARIOS means “blessed” in ancient Greek. Blessed we are, and it’s our joy to provide hope for a better future to children in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and other impoverished nations.
Founded in the spring of 2004 by Executive Director Sharla Megilligan, Makarios is a faith-based 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization committed to meeting children’s spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual needs.
