Merry Christmas from the Haiti Hospital Appeal!

We want to take this opportunity to wish all our supporters the very best of seasons greetings. Christmas can be a wonderful time of the year, yet it can also hide us from the realities of life for the hurting and the broken, wherever they might be.  For us, we seek to continue to bring hope and new life to the people of Haiti through health care services. It really has been an exciting year. Even today, construction continues on our site. Yet, we look to next year believing greater things are yet to come.

Family Training

A really exciting development of our kids work in the last few months has been the introduction of more regular parent support and training sessions.  For many of our parents in Haiti, looking after a child with a disability can be a hard and lonely task, often alienating families from the rest of their community.  Yet, our new training is providing valuable support and encouragement to these families, giving them a place to share, learn and encourage one another.  Parents have been filled with great joy attending these meetings, and feeling more able to tackle some of the tasks they face back in their towns.  

Filled with greater confidence and assurance, the families are able to feel more confident integrating into the community, and providing the valuable care their children need.  It's just another little step to a more inclusive Haiti, as we see families and communities transformed, as their understanding of disability is changed.

This work is only possible through you.  Could you help further?  If so, please donate today.

Please also check out our website in the coming few weeks as we look at ways to remember the second anniversary of the earthquake.

Thanks again for all your support in 2011, and may we once again wish you all a happy and blessed new year.

Kind regards,

The Haiti Hospital Appeal Team
