Child Health in Haiti: An Important Key Focus

At LiveBeyond, we believe in reaching the immediate needs of those in desperate need. We do this through providing maternal & child healthcare, nutrition, and education, so individuals can live successful and sustainable lives. We strive to be the hands and feet of Christ to all those we come in contact with, just as the Lord instructs us. 

“He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them – he remains faithful forever. He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets prisoners free, the Lord gives sight to the blind, the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down, the Lord loves the righteous. God watches over the foreigner and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the way of the wicked. The Lord reigns forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations. Praise the Lord.”

– Psalm 146: 6-10

One of our key focuses at LiveBeyond is child health because without healthy children, healthy adults do not exist. We believe in a ground up model that starts with the youngest generations. Our goal to end malnutrition in the Thomazeau region is one of the biggest ways we are currently focusing on child health. Also, check out this blog to learn more about how we are focusing on child health. 

There are an estimated 9300 children in Thomazeau who are suffering from malnutrition. We are currently providing meals to 3200 of these children, and we need to reach the remaining 6100 children. By the beginning of 2021, we are aiming to have our goal met for our Child Nutrition Fundraiser to provide meals for the remaining children. Head over to last week’s blog or our Facebook page to learn more about the fundraiser. 

Here’s How You Can Help…

You can help by spreading awareness of our goal through sharing our blog (just click the Facebook or Twitter icon below to share). You can also share our social posts, give single donations, or a recurring monthly gift of nutrition.    

The Lord upholds the cause of the oppressed, so we strive to do the same for all individuals living in our region of Thomazeau. You can do the same by giving the gift of nutrition today.
