This is Woodlens. He is 5 months old, and he came to the clinic today for a sick visit, but seeing his small size Samuel also evaluated him for the Emergency program. He weighs only 4kg at 5 months old. His mother is very sick with a condition that causes her abdomen to swell. In addition, he has a twin sister who is home with a relative! We will be evaluating the sister tomorrow but for today we need a sponsor for Woodlens!
If you can help us buy formula for Woodlens, please log on to www.pidonline.org and click Donate. Start a monthly sponsorship of $30 by making the following note in the Memo:
Woodlens Faustin H2057
*number in the child's photo is incorrect, his real CS number is 2057, not 1057.

We received more than a few calls and emails from confused sponsors regarding this Spring's sponsorship letter. Here, we'd like to clarify that the photos on the front of the Spring letter are NOT supposed to be photos of your sponsor child. So, if you received a Spring letter from your sponsored child with a child you don't recognize on the front, that is because the pictures on the front of the card are just the design of the card. Again, the pictures on the front of the Spring sponsorship cards are just decorative pictures of some of our PID kids and neighbors, and are NOT intended to be pictures of your child. :)
(If you are looking forward to your next actual picture of your sponsored child, we send updated pictures every December after we have our annual Christmas party.)
Sorry for any confusion!

The team from Scranton had a great week working in the village. They painted three houses and most of the outside of the clinic. The children's program was a hit and afternoon karate classes were enjoyed by all. Also 16 stoves were installed in homes.
The team members were enthusiastic and never complained. They worked very hard and their dedication to the people we serve was admirable.
