Infant formula. Expensive for an average family in the U.S. Completely out of reach for struggling Haitian families. Infants in Haiti who have lost their mothers and the opportunity to breastfeed are usually faced with bleak options – starvation at home or an orphanage that provides formula.
Hope Klinik’s Formula Feeding Program brings light into this dark situation by providing the means for fathers, aunts, and grandmas to care for their newest family members at home. Stories like the one below are made possible!
Christella spent the first month of her life in a hospital. Two weeks ago she went home to her Aunt’s house. She weighs under 5 pounds and is beautifully perfect.
Today they came in asking for help. Christella’s aunt didn’t ask the Klinik to take her baby. She is a fierce woman who is ready to fight for her niece. She’s been doing it for six weeks. She heard about the formula program at Hope Klinik and came in with all the paperwork ready to enroll her niece.
We love making this happen! These families want the same things for their babies that we in the US want for ours – a chance to live long, healthy lives at home with their family who loves them.
