2 New Children

These two children arrived at the Rescue Center this week. They aren't there because of the earthquake. They are there because of the tragedy that is poverty.

This is Darlens. They don't know exactly how old he is, but he weighs 11 pounds. 11 pounds! Wow.
Can you even believe how tiny this little guys arms and legs are?

Gedeon is suffering from Kwashiorkor, which is a severe protein deficiency. That is why he is so swollen~ and you can see from his face how awful he feels. We saw a lot of this while we were in Haiti and it's very dangerous and painful for the child. Many many children die from Kwashiorkor in Haiti.
It is truly a tragedy.

Poverty will continue to affect Haiti and we thank you all for your continued support to help these children. Thank you.
