This is HOPE at work! When our CLM team saw that Juslne''s little boy may have been suffering from malnutrition, they reached out to our health team. The nurses officially diagnosed him with severe malnutrition and he was given the care he needed to start recovering. Relieved and excited about the progress he''s making, Juslne says, Hes gotten stronger. He plays more and hes naughtier. Our programs & services for the poor in Haiti are possible with YOUR support.Donate Today: give.fonkoze.org

Join us in welcoming Suzane Felix - who has recently entered CLM, our graduation program for women living in Ultra Poverty. When Fonkoze introduced Suzane to CLM, she was shocked, having never been presented with such an opportunity. She said, ""I was in disbelief. I don''t have the words to explain my gratitude for this chance."" Learn more about our Poverty-Alleviating programs & services: fonkoze.org
