We want to congratulate Dr. Paul Farmer, who has been appointed Deputy Special Envoy to Haiti by Former President Bill Clinton. This is a huge honor and will help with the medical in Haiti. Dr. Farmer has worked in Haiti in the Central Platue for years and has built a wonderful hospital in that area, PIH, Partners In Health. I have personal met Dr. Farmer and he is a very nice man. He encouraged me to continue working in Haiti and to open the surgery center in Port au Prince.
Little Angels Surgery Center is scheduled to open its doors officially January 2010. The third floor to the building was just put under roof. We are so happy to be partnered with Haitian Christian Outreach with this project. So many of our doctors here in the US can not wait to go to Haiti and help so many more children. We are now scheduling surgery Medical Trips for next year.
Our Container of equipment landed in Haiti the beginning of August, we pray it will be cleared through customs by September so that we will be able to have our January opening date. Please keep this in your prayers.
We are still signing up Individuals and Congregations to donate $100 a month to pay for all of the employees we need to hire and train to make this a huge success. In our humble opinion the creation of jobs as well as the free surgeries for the children will help save so many lives in Haiti. If you have any questions about this or need any further information please contact either Tom or Vanessa at 540 580 9721. ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTABLE 100% OF ALL DONATIONS GO TO HELPING THE CHILDREN OF HAITI. Please keep this in your daily prayers.
Fabienne made it to Chicago for her surgery. She will have surgery tomorrow morning. We are however in need of a new host parent as her host family was notified yesterday of a transfer. So if you or someone you know lives in the Chicago land area please contact Vanessa by email or 540 580 9721. Please keep Fabienne and all the children awaiting care in prayer.
Have a blessed week
