In our August 2018 newsletter we featured the story of Esther, a Haitian girl enrolled in the Haiti School Program. Esther developed a bone disease when she was a baby. Although surgery was performed, Esther’s parents could not afford the proper follow-ups, so the bone in her leg became deformed. The means to correct her leg seemed impossible to find in the impoverished country of Haiti.

Before

CAM staff in Haiti discovered Esther’s needs after she began attending a CAM-supported school. Esther loved school and nothing could stop her from attending, not even a 45-minute walk on a crippled leg.

Through Project Good Samaritan, CAM staff found a surgeon and paid for surgery to correct Esther’s leg. She still faces many follow-up appointments, but the almost impossible, life-changing procedure has been accomplished—by supporters’ funds and God’s provision.

After

Project Good Samaritan reaches out to poverty-stricken families and individuals who suddenly find themselves faced with medical emergencies, house fires, and other unexpected needs. Often, these people cannot save for such emergencies and are destitute when they occur.

Our field staff members assess each Project Good Samaritan case and give help accordingly. Sometimes the aid is small, like providing money to help a needy widow buy medicines for her heart problems. Other times the help needed is more significant, like a family whose home has burned to the ground. No matter the amount of aid given, our supporters’ generosity is helping to meet critical needs. Thank you for touching people’s hearts and pointing them to the ultimate Good Samaritan, Jesus.
