LIFE IN HAITI
In Haiti, over half of all child deaths are related to malnutrition. Most Haitians live on less than $2 a day. My desire is to enroll undernourished children in an outpatient program that will not only bring them back to health, but teach and empower their parents to know how to feed them well and not reenter into the cycle of malnutrition. I will be using a treatment known as “Medika Mamba” (Creole for peanut better medicine) to treat each child. This treatment has proven to be extremely effective and is made in Haiti. After each child completes their regimen, their parents will be taught how to cook nutritious meals with affordable foods that are readily available to them. Our biggest goal in having this clinic is to lift Jesus’ name high and see many come to saving knowledge of him. To treat each child, it’s about $70. This is a lot of money, but we believe that God will provide.
In 7 months, we treated approximately 60 children for malnutrition. God has faithfully provided for this ministry in miraculous ways. Treating these children with Medika Mamba has cost approximately $4,200. When we came back to Haiti after furlough in November of 2016, we had only $200 to begin the malnutrition clinic. Through a handful of donors and grants from the Meds for Foods programs God has provided the additional funds needed. On two occasions, when ordering the food supplement, a buy one case get the second case for free sale was taking place!
In the spring of 2017, a team visited us surprising us with 200 cans of powder formula and 200 bottles of ready to feed milk. We thought, “Wow! How we will go through all of this?” God knew. He had plans. Since that time, God has brought to us a number of babies that have been abandoned or the mother has died and the caregiver didn’t have the means to feed them. The baby formula supplies we had on hand have flowed through our hands at a rapid rate.
We’d love for you to partner with us as we serve the next generation of Haitian children and their families.
