One of the main ministries of Real Hope for Haiti is the Rescue Center. At any one time, up to about 50 babies and young children are being cared for. Some are here because of injuries or other conditions that make it too hard for a family to care for them at home.
This child, for example was born with no bones in her lower leg or foot.
But most are there because of severe malnutrition. This is an ongoing crisis, from long before the earthquake.
Many children are admitted with kwashiorkor–a potentially fatal protein-deficiency disease
Medika Mamba is a lifesaving tool. The primary ingredient of this protein-rich food is peanut butter. Regularly at the RHFH blog there are arrival photos paired up with going home photos, and if you page down at this particular post, you can read a little bit about how they use Medika Mamba and the great impact it can have on families for the sake of the gospel.
Happy mothers returning home with their healthy children
Here are the latest admissions to the Rescue Center.
You can see more of our photos of the Rescue Center and some of the children there.
