We need your help..

 This is Monise.   She has been coming to the clinic for a few weeks.  She  is 20 years old. She only weighs 50 pounds.  Henley my 5 years old weighs 53 pounds.   She had several large abscesses on her neck.  She could not open her mouth much. The inside of her mouth had lots of sores.  Due to this, she could not eat.  She could drink a little bit at a time.  She  lived in Port-au-Prince.  She went to some hospital in town but none could offer her help.  So she came out here to Cazale and stayed with a family friend.  Both of her parent died several years ago.  She has a few brothers and an aunt.  She walked to the clinic when she could to get her medication.  She became so weak this past week that she could not walk here.  The family said they did not have money to buy the things she needed to drink.  When she came she looked worse.  We did not have a place to give her a bed.  But when we saw her we could not turn her away.  We moved some baby beds around and had room for a bed for her.  She loved the protein shakes that we made for her.  She was happy and her family came to see her each day.  On Saturday night her breathing changed.  She was just not feeling well.   She died on Sunday morning.  We called the family and they came.

We need some help with the burial fees.  The family was able to give $102.50 towards the casket.  The total cost for the casket is$641.00  So we owe $538.50 for the casket.  We found a dress for her that was donated on the last semi container.  The family paid for the grave to be dung and the person that bathed and dressed her.  There were cost for the wake of $33.  This went towards cokes, sprite and pepsi to give those at the wake to drink.  We woudl grealty appreciate any help with this need.  Let me know if you have any questions.  licia@realhopeforhaiti.org  I will let you all know the progress on this very special need.

Psalm 57:9-11 (The Message)

 9-10 I’m thanking you, God, out loud in the streets,
      singing your praises in town and country.
   The deeper your love, the higher it goes;
      every cloud is a flag to your faithfulness.

 11 Soar high in the skies, O God!
      Cover the whole earth with your glory!
