No Chance Meetings. No wasted days.Rich Stigall
Earlier this summer, Alan Dietrich had a medical meeting in Haiti, which we hoped would help orphaned children receive more care. During the day, a brief comment was made about a prosthetics facility for amputees. “That’s a great work, but not that applicable to what we’re called to do,” Alan thought. No formal partnership was formed, and Alan was a bit perplexed. Was this how he was supposed to spend his day?
This month, Kervins, a seven-year-old boy living in southern Haiti got in a accident that claimed his right leg just above the knee. Alan remembered the prosthetics efforts north of Port Au Prince and made the call. For the first time in his life, Kervins got in a car and drove to the city. Today, Kervins is halfway there. He has a now he has a state-of-the-art prosthetic and is just learning to trust it. He will be in therapy all next week learning how to walk again. He is even having some fun!
At The Global Orphan Project we are learning that, when we are helping children, there are no chance meetings. There are no wasted days. Thank you for helping Kervins and so many children like him.
