02 Nov Good Health
Earlier we shared the story of Dulce Maria, an infant who came into our care small and sickly. Thanks to Doctor Castro and our medical team she got the care she needed. Dr. Castro continues to monitor her health, growth, and development.
I am happy to report that her health continues to improve as she grows. You can see the difference that loving care and good medicine make.
Dulce Maria is not the only child in our care whose life Dr. Castro's intervention saved.
In Abraham’s case, recent quick action by our staff literally saved his life. He suffered from bronchitis when he arrived as an infant, but Dr. Francisco Castro helped him cope with the disease.
One night several weeks ago, his Special Mother realized he was having trouble breathing and contacted Dr. Castro, who came quickly to help.
Dr. Castro recognized that Abraham’s breathing problems, coupled with a high fever, signaled a serious case of pneumonia. He used our oxygen unit to help provide relief and then had the boy transported to a private hospital.
Not only did Abraham survive, he is showing incredible improvements in many areas. Today he is beginning to speak some words, eats by himself, is mobile, and demonstrates a free spirit and curiosity toward the world.
That’s why I want to ask you for help. Our goal this year is to raise $32,400 to cover the costs for our medical program.
Here’s what that includes for the year:
- $16,000 — Dr. Castro’s salary
- $8,000 — Nurse salary
- $1,400 — Office space
- $2,000 — Supplies, prescriptions, medicine
- $1,000 — Equipment
- $4,000 — Emergency hospital fund
These medical costs are vital to the operation of Dorie’s Promise and our ability to care for all of our children.
Please prayerfully consider helping with a special gift today. I don’t know what you are able to give. It seems everyone I talk with is completely engaged in the election right now, and I understand why that happens. I would simply ask that you pray about this and consider something special. Every gift matters as we work to get these medical costs covered.
Maybe you have the ability to give $500 — or $1,000. You might be more comfortable giving a gift of $100 or $50. Or maybe God is putting it on your heart to completely cover one of the items I’ve listed. Whatever your situation, I only ask that you give what is right in your heart.
