Cholera in Haiti, Dominican Republic and the United States

Update: Jan 2011 Cholera in Haiti as of Dec 25, 2010

Is there real hope for Haiti? The cholera outbreak has now spread across the border to the Dominican Republic as well as reached the United States. According to Tom Skinner (CDC)"This case is not unexpected and we're likely to see more imported cases of cholera in people who travel back from Haiti to the United States our medical system, as well as our water and sanitation programs, is such that we are not going to see cholera spreading in the United States the way it is in Haiti."

Haiti does not have a medical system or a water and sanitation program. It is people like Lori and Licia who are taking care of the victims in Haiti. Once again, you ask why do I write about this... because YOU can help. Don't sit there... donate. I promise your money will be spent wisely and God will bless you a thousand times over.

They need a kitchen!

Last year I wrote

to Oneida and asked them for forks and spoons and they blessed Pwoje Espwa with 1000 forks and spoons. I am now on the hunt for someone to help them build a kitchen. I know there has to be someone out there that can help. The food in the pan is like cream of wheat, it will be the main meal for all of the children for the day. As you can see the food is cooked outside under a canopy over an open fire. Would you like to help? Can you just give me a contact name? I know God is listening. Help me do His work.

Step out of your box!

There are times in our life when we know we should take action and yet we don’t. I know it’s hard to muster up the courage to step out of our box and do things that we aren’t use to doing. I know we all like to live in our comfort zone and pretend that the rest of the world is doing just fine without our help. I hope today is not one of those days for you. I wish for these pictures to weigh on your mind. I hope you think about this a 100 times. I hope it becomes one of those “things” you just cant ignore. I want this to touch you. I want this to be something that makes you say, “I can help do something about this.” Because the fact of the matter is YOU CAN do something about this.

Lori and Licia are my friends who live in Haiti. They are real people just like you and I. They are not some huge nonprofit organization who gets tons of money from the government. They scrap and scrounge every penny while they take care of children who are very, very sick. And by very I mean within minutes of death. Think about this _D-E-A-T-H. permanent, absolute, final, the end of this child’s life. Yes, I want you to think about this until you leap into action. I want you to look around at the little kids in your life and think how devastated you would be if your little kids died.

Jasner, came to Lori and Licia and one week later he had died. It was to late for little Jasner.

Lori and Licia administer a program called “Medika Mamba” It helps little starving children like Elita gain weight. ( By the way, Elita needs your prayers. Lori and Licia say she has lost the will to live.)
This is Dieulot, he is 2 years old and weighs 11 pounds. 11 POUNDS! Now you and I both know most babies in the United States are born weighing 7 or 8 pounds.

Would you like to see proof this program works?
From this........................................To this!
