Lubenson is a beautiful and loving four year old boy, one of the many awesome kids at the Hope for Haiti Children’s Center. He would not be alive today if it were not for the love and care of the devoted women who operate the Center. And they could not operate it without love and support from everyday folks like us.
Lubenson’s amazing story can be seen here: http://www.danitaschildren.org/the-children/room-for-one-more/lubenson
Thanks to Danita’s Children, Lubenson is a healthy, happy boy. He had access to medical care, and the love and support of caring people.
That is a rare thing for Haitian children. There is virtually no health care to speak of in Haiti itself. It takes money and privilege for a Haitian to get into the Dominican Republic for health care. Very very few Haitian children have either.
So many thousands of Haitian children die from things that very simple medical attention could remedy. And I don’t mean serious problems like Lubenson had. I mean things like infections and diarrhea. Things that might keep our kids out of school one or two days, kills Haitian kids.
It doesn’t have to be that way. The Danita’s Children organization is building a medical clinic in Ounaminthe. When it is completed the people of that place will have a chance, for the first time, to get decent medical attention. Many lives will be saved, and in so doing those who help save those lives will reflect back a little bit of God’s love.
If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. 1 John 3: 17-18.
