photos - various children

This baby lives in a village in the mountains of Kenscoff. He is only 4 days old and developed a bad eye infection after being born at home. We took him to the childrens' hospital on Tabarre and they treated the infection. Sometimes newborns in Haiti become blind after untreated eye infections.

Lenel Laguerre is the newest addition to the school program here at Coram Deo. He lives in the ravine area on the other side of Delmas 31. He is 11-years-old and has never had the opportunity to go to school.

Friedline Moise had heart surgery in the United States a few years ago. She visited the house with her mother this week. She is in good health!

Calens is the youngest boy in the school program here at Coram Deo. He is almost blind. He enjoyed the extra attention that he got from the visitors.

This hydrocephalus baby was found abandoned in Cite Soleil on Saturday morning by Mimi, of the Lamp Foundation. He was brought to Dr. Joey's hospital in the Delmas 33 region. When I put my finger in front of his hand he grabbed it and held on tight. His neurological signs are good and he should be a good candidate for surgery sometime in April or May. Pray a home can be found for him.
