I would like to share with you these words from FOTCOH volunteer,
“We travel from different parts of the United States to Haiti. The common goal forms a bond with our fellow volunteers, our interpreters, and other workers at the clinic – to help as many Haitians in need as possible – the burn victims, the domestic abuse victims, those with infected wounds, the babies who do not have enough to eat, the people with high blood pressure or diabetes. At the end of the clinic, we pray we have made a difference.” Making a difference. FOTCOH does indeed make a difference. We make a difference through our free medical clinics. We make a difference by relieving the pain of those suffering from agonizing toothaches. We make a difference by supplying life-saving medicine to malnourished babies. Sometimes we even make a difference by doing the only thing we can—showing love and compassion from one person to another. Yes, we do make a difference.
Do you make a difference? Absolutely! Your gifts allow us to do this tremendous work. Your gifts help to make sure that FOTCOH has quality medications, enough medical supplies, enough fuel to run the generators, enough of what we need to provide the best possible medical care to over 15,000 Haitians a year. Yes, you do make a difference. How can you make a difference this Christmas season? Here are a few ideas on the FOTCOH Wish List. Can we count on you?

Nathan Ruby, Executive DirectorFriends of the Children of Haiti
