Malnutrition is a devastating condition that affects both the physical and mental aspects of growth. In countries like Haiti, malnutrition runs rampantly and it continues the cycle of poverty.
As you know, LiveBeyond is on a mission to bring healthcare, nutrition, and education to our region of Thomazeau, Haiti. Because of the way the Lord is using you and your generosity, we are seeing dramatic improvements in the lives of individuals served by LiveBeyond. The LiveBeyond maternal health program has already reduced the maternal mortality rate by 66%. The LiveBeyond clinic has served thousands of desperate Haitians. And the students of the LiveBeyond school are thriving.
At LiveBeyond, we believe that child malnutrition is unacceptable and must be stopped. We estimate that in our region of Thomazeau, Haiti there have been a total of 9300 children who have chronically suffered from malnutrition. So, we have begun to provide meals to 3200 of these children each weekday, and what a difference it has made in their lives! However, there are still 6100 children who are not receiving adequate nutrition.
For 2021 we have made it our goal that these are the children we want to target. We want their lives to be changed, for them to be able to thrive, and break the cycle of poverty.
The goal is to eradicate malnutrition in one of the poorest regions in one of the poorest countries in the world. We ask you to plan your year end giving and giving into next year to help us reach this audacious goal. It is no small feet, but such a worthy cause. If you would like to give today, click here.
We cannot thank you enough for your generosity and support. Thank you for choosing to live beyond yourself. By doing so, you help to provide healthcare, nutrition, and education to those who need it so dearly. May the Lord bless you and your family.
