Clarens is a sweet little three year old who has been in our malnutrition program at Hope Center Clinic. He came to us very sick and had to go to an inpatient unit a long way from home, but he bounced back great and is now healthy enough to start school!! He has two brothers who are hoping to find sponsors too. They all live with their parents in a little village called Dalgro near Galette Chambon. His father is a farmer and his mother stays home with him and his brothers. His father is deaf, but he works hard as a share cropper to make money for his family and bring home food. The farms in the village have not done very well for the last two years, however, because of two droughts and now the hurricane. The farm where his father works was completely flooded by the river in the storm. Clarens is very excited about getting to go to school with his siblings. He doesn’t know what he wants to be when he grows up yet, but for now he just enjoys playing with his friends.
