Meet Isemanuela Alexis!

In February, the UN and Haitian Social Services brought Isemanuela to CH.  She had been bounced back and forth between family for the past several years.  At almost every home, she had been abused.  Most recently, she was with an uncle and aunt.  The police arrested both of them for child abuse and they will remain in prison – the uncle for a year and the aunt for three months.  Dr. Patrice at the CH medical/dental clinic treated Isemanuela’s wounds and she will heal physically.  She is eight years old and has never been to school so she is being tutored now at CH.  Hopefully, in the fall she will be able to attend school.  She was really scared of the nannies but has now become comfortable and can’t believe the amount of food that she is given!  You can see in the pictures below how just a few weeks at CH has brought a smile to her precious face!

Isemanuela needs sponsors.  You can sponsor her in one of the following ways:
