photos - clinic patients

Lucson Jean is a 4-year-old boy who has tuberculosis of the spine. He was hospitalized at Grace Children's Hospital for 3 months and received medication for tuberculosis yet his back is still bulging and growing. Pray care can be found for him in the United States.

Eveline Etienne has an eye tumor that is slowly growing larger. Last year I met an American eye surgeon who was operating at the state General Hospital. I am hoping to get into contact with him to find out when he would be visiting Haiti again. Maybe he can operate.

Resource Lubin broke her collar bone and it was never set. We added her name to our medical search list. Pray an orthopedic team will visit Haiti. There is a lot of orthopedic care needed in this country.

This 2-year-old girl has malnutrition and is tiny for her age. She can not walk. We are going to try to see if we can find a place for her in a feeding program. The family lives in Cite Soleil. The father was shot and killed downtown last year and since then the family has really struggled. Please keep this family in prayer.

This lady is a relative of Marie Cypion, who is the cook here at Coram Deo. She came with some family members to the clinic. They live in Cite Soleil.
