We’ve recently started a program for malnourished children through the Haitian Public Health Department.  Every child under five is weighed and measured to determine if they are normal, at risk of malnutrition or have definite malnutrition.  If they are malnourished, they are entered into a program where they are given “Plumpynut”, a peanut butter mixture, daily and they’re seen at the clinic every two weeks for three months.  We have about 12 children enrolled in the program right now, including these 8 month old twins – a boy and a girl. Here they are with their parents, who walk about an hour each way to bring them to clinic every two weeks.  They are grateful for the help in raising these precious little babies.
