Update on the Children of Rivers of Hope

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 because she also has very limited resources.

Christopher We are waiting on one more approval on the Haiti side before he will be released to come to New Orleans for treatment for his sickle-cell disease at Tulane. Tulane’s donated support will see him through this year. After that we must begin the visa process again. Red Thread Promise volunteers saw Christopher in March and May. In March he was ill, but in May, he was a typical little 2-1/2 year old boy, running, jumping, and laughing. TRTP brought him medicine from the US to help prevent his Sickle Cell attacks.
