Danita and Brittany continue to rescue desperate children in Port-au-Prince. Three more children were airlifted to the Danita’s Children facility yesterday, including this little boy.
He has lost an arm, and is in a cast from the waist down. Brittany says they found him living in a tent outside a makeshift hospital, where he has been since the earthquake killed his father and injured him. When they found him, he was crying and saying the house was crashing down on him.
Here are photos of Danita, with him and the other rescued children preparing to leave Port-au-Prince.
Karris and Brenda were waiting to receive the children when they arrived in Ouanaminthe (where the plane lands on a grass runway). Karris has described how touching it is to see their kids accept, love and comfort the new arrivals. Four year old Lubenson (who is himself an amazing rescue story http://www.danitaschildren.org/the-children/room-for-one-more/lubenson ) saw the little amputee boy and said to Karris in Creole “Mwen fe li souri anpil,” which means “I’m going to make him smile a lot.”
