Our son, Amos, was brought to a rescue center at 9 months old basically starving to death. You see, in Haiti parents don't have all the options that we have here in the United States. His mom couldn't just go down to social services and get WIC or welfare. That doesn't exist in Haiti. She couldn't just get a grant for free day care so she could work. That doesn't exist in Haiti.
What does exist in Haiti is an organization that does some of the most life saving procedures I've ever seen. I've been there. I've walked through this clinic. I've met the workers.
MY SON'S LIFE WAS SAVED THERE.
My son would have died had it not been for this place. Just typing those words brings tears to my eyes. From the beginning of time God knew that when Licia, Lori & their parents moved to Haiti that one day they would save a boy that would one day be adopted by The Ivey's. Geez that is amazing.
REAL HOPE FOR HAITI is an organization that is sharing the love of Jesus through saving kids lives and now they are trying to build a whole building to for the cholera patients that they have. Cholera is not gone. People are still dying. RHFH is still saving lives. Last November I wrote about RHFH and their need for financial support with the cholera epidemic. They still need your support. In fact they need it now more than ever.

Please don't take my word for their need. Seriously go check out these blogs that are talking about them. If you would like to support some organization that is saving lives please support this organization this month with your money. EVERY SINGLE LITTLE BIT COUNTS!
To make a donation to to RHFH, go to their website and then go to the paypal link in the upper right hand corner on the web site or sent to our home office -Real Hope for Haiti/P.O. Box 23/Elwood, IN/46036 please include a note or memo letting us know it is for the cholera hospital.
They are trying to raise $13,000 in 13 days. I'm a little late on this post, so we only have six days left for you to get in on this game.
Would you consider $30, $50, $100, $250? Or what if you have $1,000 and you have the ability to give it away. Would you please pray about it.
Here's a picture of where the cholera house will be:
