Medika mamba updates

Our medika mamba program continues to grow here at RHFH.  We currently have 38 in patient on the program and 1 out patient.  There have been 408 patients enrolled on the program since we started in 2009.   We are very happy with the product and see a great difference in the lives of the kids that are suffering from marasmus  (wasting), kwashiorkor (kwash), and marasmic-kwashiorkor.  Below are some of our recent grads from the program.

 We want to thank Meds & Food for Kids for producing this product here in Haiti, we want to thank World Wide Village for the funding of this product since 2008.  A special thank you to T & T Livesay for raising funds for this product that is saving lives each and every day in our little village of Cazale.  We cannot forget Lesley G, who updated all the profiles, and Allison who is now heading up this program, which takes a lot of hours to keep records and keep reports.  Lastly I want to thank those that do the small jobs that no one sees.   The nannies that work with the kids feeding them by spoonful each and everyday.  The countless volenteers that fill the bowls up for the kids each night, without complaining, just getting the job done, even though it is not to fun.  My nannies are more impressed with your work than anyone, and that means more to me than you know.  It is showing them Jesus through the little things we do that changes lives.  Thank you for being faithful.
