Thank you from Roseberline

Thank you everyone who shared Roseberline's story. She found a sponsor!

MESI!


If you're looking for another child to sponsor, consider helping Marie Ange go to school this year. Marie Ange's mother came into the office on Monday asking if her daughter found a sponsor yet. Her daughter is still on the waitlist, and is hoping to be able to afford school this year. Log on to www.pidonline.org and click "Donate" and start a sponsorship with "Marie Ange H824" in the Memo. 


Summer Camp Team in Haiti

The Summer Camp team is here this week in Haiti showing love to kids from surrounding towns and villages. So far they have seen over 400 kids! The kids sing, do a craft project, hear a Bible message and eat a nice hot lunch. Plus, on their way home, every kid is getting a GALLON of raw white rice, several cups of raw beans, and cooking oil to take home as a goodie bag. Its especially hot this year, but the team is sticking out the heat and enjoying the kids.

Massive pile of bags of rice! This will all go out to local kids and their families this week.

Can you help Roseberline?

This is Roseberline. She came into the PID clinic here in Haiti in July. She is 9 months and is far from the chubby baby most babies weigh at that age. She weighs 15 pounds, and the skin on her arms and thighs just hangs off of her. PID needs help to continue giving her formula. Her mother Widline, and her 3 year old sister Widlene love her very much. Mom suffers from memory problems for unknown reasons, and she is doing her best to care for the baby.

If you can sponsor Roseberline, please log on to www.pidonline.org and click "Donate". Set up a sponsorship with "Roseberline H2034" in the Memo.

Emergency: Sponsor needed for Fritznelson in Haiti

Fritznelson lives in a house with 17 other people.
The Thomas family urgently needs sponsorship for little Fritznelson. The family of 18 lives in a 3 room house. The mother of Fritznelson suffers from mental illness as do at least two of the older children. As a result the grandmother (pictured above) and grandfather care for the household. Fritznelson's father is believed deceased and his mother is not working due to her limitations.

Fritznelson is currently getting formula and nutrition cookies from PID to get his weight back up. If you are able to sponsor Fritznelson, please log on to www.pidonline.org and click 'Donate', then 'Child Sponsorship', then input the following information to set up a paypal payment:

Sponsorship letters from Haiti



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!

Final Day for Scranton Team

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.

Sunday Night in Guatemala

Today the team got to spend the day in Antigua. They did a little sight seeing and some souvenir shopping. They also were able to attend a morning church service in Antigua.

We have finished painting two houses and installed seven stoves so far. The kids are realling enjoying the activities at the children's program.
