Dear Loved Ones,

Greeting. What are all those children doing there? Are they in a school, a church or where are they? Those children are at the eye clinic for their eyes screening, testing and treatment.

They came from our Baptist Church of Pilate, about 4 hour drive from the Cap-Haitian where the eye clinic is. They are the lucky ones to have an early screening of their eyes. This is an effort between the eye clinic and the school administrators to help those children be successful in their learning for a better tomorrow.

Many children of their ages and many adults do not have that privileged to have that kind of early serious and throughout screening. They realize when it is too late that they eyes have been damaged behind repair.

At the eye clinic they get thoroughly tested, treated and those needing eye glasses are given the best one can find on our market today.

Thank you for supporting the eye clinic so that children like these ones can have a better future.

In Haiti,

Children get lunch

 

Friends,

Once again, the eye clinic serves its community and others far away.  Much planning must go into these events.  Transportation, preparing for a large group, lunch, etc.  Since cell phones things have improved but there is still no MacDonald’s down the street and the 4-hr. trip might only be 40 or 50 miles away.  Many a child has been labeled dumb due to inability to see clearly.  What a wonderful way to show God’s love and get them started out right.

Part of the equipment seen here was donated by my eye doctor.  Would your eye doctor donate some?  Contact me if he/she would and I will find out if they need it, and If so I know how to get it to Haiti.

Love and peace,
