Since July of 2013, we've had the honor of walking alongside Real Hope for Haiti to help those in need. We've provided thousands of diapers, formula, clothes, toys and other needs, thanks to you.
Your support has helped thousands of people, people like Princelenska and her son Job. Real Hope recently shared their story, and it's a joy to share it with you:
Desperate and searching, Princelenska and her husband longed to find help for ther son, Job. His parents, both teachers, met and married a few years ago. Once Job was born, his mom stayed home to care for him, but he soon developed a horrible skin infection that covered his whole body. They went to almost every clinic and hospital possible, but they never found a solution to his skin issues. He was in pain, ate poorly, and soon became malnourished.
Following a recommendation, they came to RHFH and were admitted for treatment. His mom never left his side and applied all the education and suggestions she received with an open heart.
Even though others thought he would die, this mama wasn't going to give up without fighting for her first-born. That's what love does: it hopes, it believes, and it battles for the good of others. She was ready to give her all for him to live.
Though medications and mamba (and diapers!) were used, the love of this mama healed her son. Her own mother, who died 6 yrs ago, gave her many life lessons: nothing in life is easy, don't focus on the difficulties but rather on the lessons learned, and have courage through it all. These words lit a fire of love that helped her to always be ready to do anything for her son.
They would love to have more kids down the road but want to make sure Job has a good start at life before continuing their family. She asks that you pray that she would remain a faithful servant of God, that God would give her wisdom to raise him, and that he could one day grow up to be a doctor to help others that were sick like him. She prays foryou, and because of Job's recovery, knows how your continued support will be a blessing to others who are desperately ill.
Thank you for the joy you bring to families like Princelenska and Job's. You are a true blessing and we are so thankful to have you as part of the Jake's family.
