The ministries and programs at Haiti Children’s Home focuses on a unified desire with Haitian Children’s Aid Society to keep families together and educate them on the importance of quality nutrition. An umbrella covering all children that have family involvement but are still not receiving the nutrition and care needed to thrive. Children like Christine…
Christine’s story is one that is all too common in Haiti. Her mom struggled to find enough food to feed Christine each day. Not only was quantity an issue, but quality. In Haiti, sources of protein are often expensive and thus are often excluded from a regular diet, causing swelling.
By providing good nutrition such as fortified medical grade peanut butter, Christine quickly lost the water weight associated with the swelling She began to put on healthy weight. We hardly recognized her a month after she came in, so great was the change in her entire body!
Christine has now returned to her amazed family. Haiti Children’s Home will be able to follow up with her in our outpatient nutrition program.
