As this year is quickly taking off, we want to share some updates about LiveBeyond operations in Haiti and Israel with you. Through our healthcare, nutrition, and education efforts, we want to help people escape the cycle of poverty and create sustainable, thriving communities. We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for people in need, and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve individuals in Haiti and Israel.
Together we are making a positive difference in the lives of those we serve. We share these updates with you so you can see how your faithful prayer and generous support are helping create a positive impact around the world. Thank you for partnering with us this far.
– The Johnny’s Kis program is growing and actively adding new students until we reach full capacity of 30 students.
– The students are receiving top-quality physical therapy, speech therapy, and education.
– In order to provide each student with the best services possible, we are continuing to search for a quality occupational therapist and an additional teacher for the program.
Though the Johnny’s Kids program in Israel is still fairly new, children’s lives are already being impacted for the better. The LiveBeyond staff met a child who was unable to walk due to a physical disability they were born with, and the staff was eager for the child to join the program. Afraid of false hope and convinced that they would never see their child have the ability to walk, the child’s parent was reluctant to have the child join the Johnny’s Kids program. With encouragement from Johnny’s Kids staff, the parent agreed to allow the child to join the program. It is a joy to share with you that after several months, a lot of hard work, and physical therapy, the child is now able to walk! What a blessing. We praise God for what he is doing in Israel.
The maternal health program is thriving! With continued economic struggles throughout Haiti, many local hospitals and clinics continue to remain closed. With these circumstances, the LiveBeyond hospital and maternal health clinic are seeing a large uptick in numbers. We are currently serving 1400 mothers weekly in the maternal health program and seeing an average of 80 to 100 patients daily at the hospital. The nurses and doctors are doing an excellent job at ensuring the community is being served well and receiving the best quality care.
To help with the higher number of patients, we hired two new nurses for a total of 10 LiveBeyond nurses! We are also expanding our medical staff in other new ways as well. We will soon hire a new lab technician to start providing much needed vaccines for all babies & children we serve. This is something we have long aspired to do. The LiveBeyond Haitian medical staff put the proper plan in place to make it a successful reality!
The Haitian doctors and nurses are paving the way and creating positive change for their community! The doctors’ and nurses’ initiative to continue looking for ways to improve the quality of care they offer their patients speaks to the excellence of the staff and the exceptional quality of care provided. The high standards for care and the compassion of all the medical staff are improving the quality of life for the entire Thomazeau community, one patient at a time.
It brings joy & encouragement to see the growing number of people LiveBeyond serves & witnessing the improvement in quality of life. Together we are making a difference in the lives of those we serve. Efforts from the LiveBeyond staff are creating long-term positive change for the people of Haiti and Israel.
We are grateful for your continued prayer and generous support, which makes all of this possible. Efforts in Haiti and Israel are not just addressing immediate needs but also building a foundation for a brighter future. Your partnership with LiveBeyond helps create a world where people can live beyond their circumstances and reach their full potential. But there is more we can do.
Our health, nutrition, and education programs are about more than just providing care for the needs of today. They are about giving people the tools & resources they need to build a better future for themselves & their communities. LiveBeyond is thrilled to see the progress being made, & we look forward to continuing our efforts with you. If you would like to be a part of these efforts, you can donate online here.
