Thankfully, a woman from a nearby village noticed the boys. She took them to a mountain clinic run by our food partner, Real Hope for Haiti (RHFH).
When they asked Michelet and Machelet what had happened, the boys became visibly nervous and guarded. They didn’t want to talk about it.
“These boys have been neglected for most of their lives and have experienced so many losses,” said RHFH. “We suspect their lives have been full of great sadness and suffering.”
Michelet and Machelet need time to heal. Both are severely stunted and look like they are only 4 or 5 years old. But in just a few short months, with the help of daily FMSC meals, Michelet gained 10 pounds and Machelet gained 8 pounds after losing the water weight from kwashiorkor.
Your generosity sends hope and healing to children like Machelet and Michelet in the worst situations around the world. Every dollar is important. Just 22 cents makes a difference for a hungry child.
Please give a meaningful gift today so more kids like Michelet and Machelet receive this essential food.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
