Meet one of our precious children, Patrico!
On May 8, 2014, we received a call from IBESR, Haitian Social Services, about a 10 year old boy who was left abandoned at a hospital in Gonaives. He had epilepsy along with a cerebral handicap. In this case, those in authority within the Haitian social services authorized the hospital to give the child to the Coreluv Children’s Village in Myan. When contacted and presented with this situation, there was no question that Patrico needed to come to Myan where he could be loved and cared for as every child should be!
Patrico does not walk or talk. However, since coming to Myan he is receiving love and physical therapy. Our hope and prayer is that Patrico would be able to stand on his own and eventually walk!
Thanks to you, Patrico is being cared for in a loving home and receiving the proper medical care he deserves! We are blessed that he is a part of our Coreluv family!
Defending the Orphan goes beyond one day, one week, one month, even beyond one year. It is a daily call to care for and pray for these children. We could NOT do what we do without each and every one of our partners. It takes all of us together to make a difference in the lives of these children, daily providing their six basic needs of clean water, proper food, healthcare, education, job skills and Christ-centered loving home. If you are not already an Orphan Care Partner, you can say yes and become one today by visiting our Orphan Care Partnership Page. Thank you.
