    The Red Thread of Destiny Meets Widline
    By - Sonya Yencer - Vice President, The Red Thread Promise
    What does our name mean? Over the past 10 years we've answered this question dozens of times, but our recent encounter with Widline, a 14-year-old Haitian girl, explains it beautifully. We'd like to share her story with you. The Red Thread Promise's name is rooted in an ancient Chinese proverb...

    Where there's a will
    By - Sonya Yencer - Vice President, The Red Thread Promise
    When The Red Thread team sees the faintest glimmer of hope to improve the life of a child with a disability, we JUMP! Each child is treated as if they are our own. We explore every option imaginable, even if it means coming to Haiti to accompany two blind boys to the ophthalmologist. So that’s just what we...

    HEARS for YEARS
    By - Sonya Yencer - Vice President
    It was such a joy to visit St. Vincent’s last week during our trip to Haiti. As soon as the kids saw us on campus, we savored hug after hug, kiss after kiss, and greetings in sign, Kreyol, English and French. After more than 2 years of work at St. Vincent’s, we can’t begin to express how wonderful it is...

    Sickle Cell Disease Celebration
    By - Sonya Yencer - Vice President

If you've been following our care of little Christopher from Haiti, you already know that at a very young age he was diagnosed with sickle cell disease in his home country. The Red Thread Promise has been supporting his medical care for almost 3 years...

    Providing fresh water
    By - Sonya Yencer - Vice President, The Red Thread Promise
    During our many visits to Haiti since 2009, we have taken a long, hard look at some basic necessities that, while abundant in many parts of the world, are at a premium in Haiti. One of those critical necessities is potable water.  Potable water is pure enough to drink with a low risk of harm, both immediate and over...

    Keeping sickle cell at bay
    By - Sonya Yencer - Vice President, The Red Thread Promise
    Christopher is an orphan in Haiti who suffers from sickle cell anemia. Sickle cell anemia is a disease passed down through families in which red blood cells form an abnormal crescent shape. The fragile, sickle-shaped cells deliver less oxygen to the body's tissues. They can also get stuck more easily in small blood...

    GlobalGiving Visits Rivers of Hope orphanage
    By - Marisa Glassman - Business Development Manager, GlobalGiving
    Whereas I typically think of orphanages, in the US or abroad, as sad places where children are not cared for and get little love or attention, Rivers of Hope Orphanage was nicer than most hotels I've seen, let alone childcare centers, even as compared with the wealthiest of neighborhoods in the US.  The orphanage,...

    Ongoing Efforts at Rivers of Hope
    By - Sonja Beals Iribarren - Board Member, The Red Thread Promise (TRTP)
    It takes $300 a month per child to care for each child.  We continue to support Rivers of Hope for any medical / daily care needs of the children until they are matched with their forever families.   And they ARE getting matched!   Once matched, a child’s new family takes over the payments...

    Update on the Children of Rivers of Hope
    By - Sonja Beals Iribarren - Board Member, The Red Thread Promise (TRTP)
    Currently there are seven boys and one girl at Rivers of Hope Orphanage. Many parents are asking that the orphanage take their children after the earthquake because food and jobs are that much harder to come by, and they are struggling to keep their children fed and healthy. The director has to turn many families away...
