Formula for Babies at an Orphanage in Haiti



Orphans don't have the benefit of nursing which most health professionals believe is better for the future health of a baby. But their mothers are not there to do that. We currently have 75 babies who need formula to stay alive and grow. Without that, they would not have a chance at life. By having enough formula we are giving these children a chance at life and a future.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Orphaned children do not have the benefit of nursing because their birth mother is absent. At a very young and very fragile age, these children would not survive if we didn't have adequate supplies of the right type of formula to feed these malnourished and fragile children. It truly is a matter of life and death for these children.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project will solve the problem of adequate nutrition for the weak, ill and fragile infants who don't have mothers to feed and care for them by giving us the opportunity to provide them the food and nutrition they need while they are healing and growing and developing.

Potential Long Term Impact

The long term impact is very simple to describe - without formula, these 75 children will not have a future. With adequate nutrition most of them will be able to grow and become participating members of society. We have, on average, anywhere from 50 to 75 children on formula at any given time. Currently we have 75 babies who need us to provide them formula because they can't handle "real food."
