Surgery…

During our medical visit in December, several people sought out the medical team for some personal attention. Without any announcement, the word was out! After our daily student examinations at the school, we took the medical bag and responded to several needs in the surrounding area. One young lady, Nathalie, had an obvious malady in her abdominal region. The nurse decided she needed to get to a hospital for pictures of what was going on inside… The group quickly rustled up the funds and sent her in to receive the results pictured below.

So, Nathalie needs a surgery that she and her family can’t afford. We returned home and pleaded on her behalf while at River Spring Lodge and our friend, Kay kicked off a drive that continued at Life Spring in Worcester, MA and at Solid Rock Church in Albany, NY. After a few short weeks, all of the funds have been collected for the surgery and the medicines needed to go along with it!

I spoke with Nathalie this morning and she is SOooo thankful!! She has asked that everyone helping be thanked and she is praying God’s blessings on you!

River Spring Lodge and the Hamers…

This month we had the first of a planned monthly fundraiser at the beautiful River Spring Lodge in Darien Center New York! Dave & Carolyn Hamer have graciously opened their lodge and their hearts to Project Nourish and our work with children in impoverished Haiti.

This event, besides being in an elegant venue, was successful in that ten percent of the annual target, for the school project, was reached. We at Project Nourish are so pleased with the benevolence already shown in the people of the Buffalo and Rochester regions of New York.

 

With the continued efforts here we will be covering the costs of a rural school in Haiti including students tuition, books, and uniforms as well as salaries for the staff and a feeding program for students and staff! We are so excited to be providing the much-needed education to these young lives…
