Tanja and Jeremiah Dwire’s lives were dramatically changed after a mission trip to Haiti in December of 2012.

After returning to the U.S., the Dwires were inspired to do more to help the people of Haiti – especially widows and orphans.


They created the 7:10 Foundation, based on the Bible verse Zechariah 7:10: “Oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart.”
