Wanna See More Of RHFH?

They have posted a wonderful short tour of the Real Hope For Haiti Rescue Center and Clinic on their blog. It shows so much of what is going on there every day. So many people being seen in the clinic and lots of malnourished kids being cared for (outside still, since the earthquake).

You can see it all HERE.

Another New Child Admitted

A 5 pound 1 year old was admitted to the Rescue Center.
If you remember seeing the picture of Darlens (on the left) you know that he is a 12 pound 2 year old. Hard to imagine, isn't it?

I don't post these pictures for shock. I just want people to see WHY we are doing what we are doing. It almost seems too simple that art can help these kids~ but the money raised from donated and purchased artwork provides Medika Mamba and meals and medical care for them.

Not everyone can fly to Haiti and help, but I know a lot of you out there can create something or purchase something to help these kids. It really is simple, isn't it?

Sweet Darlens

This is Darlens. His aunt brought him to the Rescue Center because both parents were killed in the Earthquake. He is probably 2-3 years old, has a full set of teeth, is 78 cm tall and weighs 12 pounds. He is suffering from Marasmus.
12 pounds. Wow.

This little guy just breaks my heart.

New Artist

We are so excited and honored to have had four AMAZING Encaustic Paintings donated by artist Sonja Raven. Encaustics are created by painting with beeswax and the results of this ancient artform are so striking and look beautiful in any home or business.

Sonja says "my passions are far beyond the physical artwork itself. I want to provoke spiritual awareness, the importance of every moment of energy being utilized for unselfish results. We are all a piece of the puzzle. We need to be awake and proactive in thought and spirit no matter how unprofound some things may feel."

Sonja's work is for sale now on our new website.
