So far, over 5000 people have signed the petition to close down the Son of God orphanage in Haiti.

haiti orphansIn less than 48 hours, my blog post on the 75 orphans in jeopardy and the corruption involved in this situation has been read and shared over 6000 times. Many of you have gotten the word out in your own way, and we are extremely grateful.

But none of this matters if this is just another impersonal cause without a face. So I want to introduce you to Katia.

Katia is a one of the orphans in grave danger at the Son of God Orphanage. A week ago our contact was able to get her to the doctor. Her weight had dropped from 14 lbs to 11 lbs. She is 5 years old.

The doctor told us that if something wasn’t done immediately, she would die. We just found out she’s missing. 

Most likely, she’s dead.

I can’t sugar-coat this for you. This is real. These are real children, and something must be done. If you remember the story of Magdala, this is the same orphanage. I’m not proud of the fact that we gave money to this cause, that we were tricked.

But we need to act now, to stop this before another child disappears.
 
Please help stop this injustice by raising your voice. There are 75 other Katias remaining at the orphanage. They are completely vulnerable.
 

Our contact on the ground, Megan, shares the story of a baby she recently encountered at Son of God:
 

As she closes her eyes tightly, her young mind is filled with confusion.  Her fear is great and her pain is greater.  Laying on the cold, dirty concrete floor…rats run by as once again her belly is empty…

Her mind runs through the faces of all of the people who have come to visit…but yet things stay the same…little food to eat because it is being sold, continuous beatings, neglect, abuse…

Hearing this child scream as I helped clean her 13-day old wound is a sound and a sight that I will never forget. The pain, the fear, being trapped, not being able to share what happened.

Most recent reports indicate that not only are the children being trafficked, but those responsible are harvesting their organs.

 
We’re currently tapping all our resources to finish up the 5000 additional names we need for the petition. The biggest part of our strategy involves you. 

We need you to use your voice to share Katia’s story to bring this injustice to light. We need you to help us free 75 other orphans just like her before they go missing… or worse.
