We are asking for help in medical treatment funding for:

Woudeson an 8 year old Haitian orphan and for Esther a 3 year old Haitian.


Both children have serious eye tumors and no hope but you.

Please read their stories below and make it possible for these children to live.

Please give generously.

“Living in Faith” Eye Clinic is located east of Port-au-Prince Haiti. Working in Haiti since year 2000 it has provided thousands of patients with eye exams, eyeglasses, treatment for glaucoma and surgery for cataracts and cornea transplants. It is considered one of the best eye clinics in Haiti. It is under the ministry of “Living in Faith” based in Tampa Florida.

Recently several children have been brought to our clinic with tumors associated with their eyes. We believe these children could be operated on if here in the United States. We are working to find facilities and doctors to help. There is promising hope Esther will be accepted for treatment and we are waiting for a biopsy on Woudeson to determine the treatment path.



Woudeson:
Woudeson is an eight year boy in Haiti. In April 2018, he was brought by his grandmother to the “Living in Faith” Eye Clinic. He is an orphan as both his parents are dead and his elderly grandmother is trying to care for him. Woudson’s left eye is being pushed out by a tumor. “Living in Faith” paid for an MRI of his eye and orbit. The MRI showed a tumor behind his eye. Doctors in the USA have asked for a biopsy of the tumor and we are working to find a means to obtain this.

Once a biopsy is completed we will need to find a medical facility is the US that will take Woudeson as a patient. We have begun the process of obtaining a Haitian passport for Woudeson and once a facility is found, they will provide a letter to justify the need to travel to the United States for treatment.

Funds are desperately needed to provide for passports for both Woudeson and an escort. Also funds are needed for transportation, food and housing while in the USA. Our intentions and prayers are to have medical treatment provided gratis.

Without treatment we are told Woudeson will die.

He has such a sweet spirit. He is a little scared and he is beginning to feel pain. Woudeson was born just a couple of months after the devastating earthquake in 2010. He was raised amongst the rubble and survived early childhood after losing his parents. His grandmother is feeble and finds it difficult to care for the child. We are looking for an orphanage to care for him.

Our current estimated need for Woudeson for MRI, Haitian passport, US Visa, Airfare, ground transportation, housing, food and etc. is for $5,000.00.   



Esther
Esther is a three year girl brought to the Living in Faith Eye Clinic in June 2018. We obtained an MRI of the right eye. The MRI showed a tumor growing behind the eye. It is the type of tumor that shows promise of being successfully being removed in the United States. Doctors in the USA have indicated they would provide their services gratis once Esther is in the USA. Funds are desperately needed to provide for passports for both Esther and an escort. Also funds are needed for transportation, food and housing while in the USA. Our prayers are that the medical treatment will in fact be provided gratis.
Without treatment we are told Esther will die.

Our current estimated need for Esther is for $5,000.00
