March Update: COVID-19 in Haiti – New disposals to save our kids at One Vision.

Friends and sponsors of One Vision! It’s April, and that means we are looking back at the past month with an update from Francisco, Orphanage Director & President. We pray that you are encouraged by the ways God is moving and working at the orphanage, in our kids and staff, and the country of Haiti. Please join us in prayer for the things Francisco shares in this update.

“You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.”

–Psalm 91:5-6

Since the pandemic has been in Haiti, Haitian people are in panic. The government has taken a lot of disposals to limit the spread of the virus in Haiti.

What have we done at One Vision to prevent the Coronavirus from getting in our house?

To start, we sent all employees home (except our medical staff) to avoid other people going back and forth into the orphanage. 

Next, we locked all kids inside to avoid any contact with people outside, and also prepared an isolation room for any cases of Coronavirus. They have everything for one month such as food, water, face mask, hand sanitizer, electricity, medical supplies, etc…

What’s more, we taught them the basic hygiene measures: how to wash their hands well, wear a face mask, and how to cough and sneeze. We trained our kids in order to prevent the virus in the orphanage.

Above all, we keep praying to God every day for His help. As he said in Psalm 91:1, “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty”. We know that He is the only one who can protect us from this pandemic. We have faith in God, and believe that He will always be with us no matter what. 

This is a worldwide virus; everyone needs to pray for one another. While you are praying for yourself, remember us. Remember the future generation, our kids. The kids need us more than ever. They need our protection. Let’s save them! No matter how terrifying the pandemic is; we should stay strong and courageous for them. We are grateful for God’s compassion toward our kids and family. We are grateful for your consistent prayer and help. May God be our shelter!
