Let the Little Children Come

From Aaron's blog today:

in underdeveloped countries, children are usually the most at risk. when the average Haitian makes less than one dollar a day, children rarely get the food and nutrients they need in the first years of their lives. this leads to children suffering from kwashiorkor, which is the near-death results of not having protein and nutrients to live. normal families sometimes only have flour and water to feed their children, which causes these kids to be at the end of their ropes. with conditions like these, more than half of all Haitian children die before their fifteenth birthday.

In Cazale, lives are saved. Children are healed. Wounds are bandaged. broken and desperate kids are loved and cared for. for a lot of children in the surrounding areas, the rescue center may be the ONLY chance they have for real hope of survival.
