The Heartbreak of Cholera

Cholera is still a very real threat throughout Haiti. The rest of the world seems to have forgotten about it, but the Cholera house at RHFH has been seeing new patients constantly. Sadly people are continuing to suffer and die because of this disease.

This week, a sweet pregnant lady named Rosemitha died from Cholera. This was the first pregnant woman they lost. This was a horrible reminder to all of us that Cholera isn’t gone and is still taking lives and leaving behind sad husbands, fathers, and family members.

Please keep Rosemitha’s family in your thoughts and prayers.

 

Fanise

Sweet Fanise recently arrived at Real Hope For Haiti and is now living in the Rescue Center.

Fanise is 20 months old and her weight here in this picture was 23 pounds 12 ounces.  She currently weighs 17 pounds.  Her legs had several holes in them and were leaking water from her kwashiorkor.  She had a terrible fungal infection.  She was very neglected and malnourished when admitted.  She is recovering quickly with the medika mamba.

If you choose to donate something you have created to Artists For Hope, the money goes directly to help children at the Rescue Center. They need donations to keep all the kids fed and cared for. So your paintings, jewelry, clothing, mosaics, iron work, dolls, or whatever it is that you create becomes something that is saving lives. Thank you for helping!

 

Junkstock. Be There.

If you live in the Omaha area you MUST be at Junkstock this weekend.

We are super excited to go and visit Homegrown Junk and Painted Pineapple. Two great artists that have donated to help save little lives in Haiti through Artists For Hope.

Check out this gorgeous handmade necklace by artist Joey Breed from Painted Pineapple. SO so pretty!  This and many other gorgeous pieces will be available.

Hope to see you there!!!
