WJTL just received this update from Mr. Bill, a Kids Cookie Break artist (Wa-wa-wa-water), who works with Child Hope in Haiti:
We have had very serious damage to the homes, the girls home being the worse. But, praise God, no injuries to the kids have occured outside of Daphne who had a wall fall on her and is currently in traction awaiting treatment by a pediatric surgeon due to a broken leg.
We set up the boys home as a medical relief center for the area because the hospitals are not receiving new patients. Hundreds of victims of the earthquake have been through the center and we have been going non-stop, 24-hours-a-day. Many serious injuries. The most recent being people who were dug out of colapsed buildings. We have been blessed with steady flow of nurses, local doctors and others that have assisted us. And, of course, Brooke and Ashley have been working very hard. Also, many of the MDL kids are putting in a lot of time to care for the injured.
Unfortunately, we are running seriously low on med supplies, food and other items to help care for the injured and their families. We cannot even conceive how we will make the building repairs needed.
All our children are sleeping outside in “the bins” (our sports center) because they are afraid of the aftershocks. The Mission Viejo team has been great at working with the kids and assisting with the med care center.
Please pray that we can hold up through the crisis and that we can get the supplies we need. Also, please pray for the many families who have lost family members or have family members that are suffering from injuries, as well as those left without homes.
Thank you for your prayers.
