photos - cite soleil - part 4

These are some of the children who were part of the clinic.

This woman has a t-shirt of Barack Obama. The people of Cite Soleil are hoping that the United States and other countries help them as the haitian government does not have the resources to do so.

This is Dieuna Philippes' mother and youngest child. Dieuna Philippe died a couple of years ago. She had hydrocephalus. Her mother calls from time to time just to say hello.

Myrlande Pierre is a 14-year-old girl who had a broken arm that was never set. After the earthquake her mother sent her out to the countryside to be with relatives. While there she fell and broke her arm.

Now she can't bend her elbow anymore. We are going to bring her to one of the mission hospital groups that is here in Port-au-Prince.
