We did it! Thanks to your support, the Intensive Care Unit now has a supply of disposable diapers. While cloth diapers are a more sustainable option, in this particular case disposable diapers are a better fit. Diapers are an often overlooked basic need, but so very critical for those that need them.
Woudjina is one of the children who has passed through the Intensive Care Unit (and graduated to the Rescue Center). She is 9 months old and weighed 9 lbs when admitted to the ICU at our Diaper Drop Real Hope for Haiti. Her parents are both young, and neither one has been caring for her since she was 4 months old. She had been staying with her grandma and became sick a few months ago. Her mom went and got her, and brought her in for inpatient care. She was very sick and very weak when admitted. She was malnourished, with lots of diarrhea and a fever. Her grandma has a garden where she grows tomatoes and beans to sell for a profit. They live in a home made of tin, rocks, and clay.
