Update - Rose Andrèe
Today we can happily announce that sweet Rose Andrèe’s heart is normal. We learned this from the Haiti Cardiac Alliance who did a full work up for the little one at Saint Damien Pediatric Hospital in Port-au-Prince on Tuesday.
While this visit did not necessarily “cure” the precious 2-year-old, it did give us important information about her heart and allowed Pwoje Espwa to make a valuable connection with another organization.
The trip also served as an important reminder of the love that children within Espwa receive from staff each and every day. Watching how the nurse and house mother took care of and advocated for Rose Andrèe every step of the way demonstrated Espwa’s important role in the lives of these children while their biological parents work to get back on their feet.
All of this was made possible thanks to Dr. Christopher Powers, a volunteer who first visited Pwoje Espwa in March and made the connection with Haiti Cardiac Alliance! We are so grateful for these connections and for the determination of all parties to get Rose Andrèe well.
As we move forward with a plan to visit a hospital that specializes in throat problems, we will be sure to keep you all updated! Thanks for your love and prayers in the meantime.
