We believe that “Breast is Best” and if at all possible we encourage mothers to breastfeed. However, in cases such as a mothers’ death, abandonment, or illness, sometimes breastfeeding is not possible. Infant formula is expensive, and completely out of the price range of 90% of the country. Instead, babies who do not have mother’s milk are usually given crushed soda crackers in water or porridge. It is not possible for babies to thrive on this diet, and it is in these situations that we step in to provide infant formula. These babies go from being chronically undernourished to chubby and healthy because of the good nutrition we are able to provide.

Many families despair when it becomes clear that mother’s breastmilk is not going to be an option. We have the privilege of watching their despair turn to hope as their child’s life literally transforms in front of them to a life of health and hope. We invite you to join us!

Kervensonformula1Our goal is to provide infant formula for babies in our program from their admit date until they reach at least 18 months to reduce the risk of childhood malnutrition. These babies are all not able to breastfeed for various reasons, and therefore need a replacement for their mothers’ breastmilk to keep them healthy.

Each baby comes in at least twice a month to receive formula and to have his or her weight monitored. Health checks are done at each visit to ensure the baby is healthy and thriving, and medication is provided if necessary! We also work hard to teach families about many important health topics, including how to treat water to prevent diarrheal disease, good hygiene, and the importance of good nutrition for babies who are over 6 months of age.

As a sponsor you will receive bi-monthly photo and story updates on your sponsored child. You will also be given the opportunity to continually lift up your child and his or her family in prayer. You will be providing hope and health to a family in need in Haiti, and providing for one of the least of these in God’s kingdom, and for this the reward is great

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'” – Matthew 25:40
