Everyday we are in contact with our people in Jacmel. Annette, Jean Philippe and Fritz live st our mission and respond to needs as they come up.
A month ago a poor mother with her baby came to the gate. Annette recognized how weak the baby was. She sent us a photo right away and said to us here in Miami what shall I do? We gave the mother food, baby milk and money to go the hospital for the baby was malnourished. In the midst of all this we never asked for the baby’s name.
Today we received a message from Annette that the baby died today. She died because of no food, no work, no money, no hospital open. How long can this go on?
