On a warm day in Haiti, 18-month-old Aliana dances in the courtyard of her orphanage, tossing her doll in the air, seeming happy and content with her life.“She’s so happy and thriving,” says Julie Joseph, founder of Redeemer’s House Orphanage. “We are so thankful she’s healthy because her life could have turned out very differently.”
Aliana almost didn’t live past her first birthday. Not being able to provide for her in the chaotic and dangerous streets of Port-au-Prince, Aliana’s mother dropped her off at Redeemer’s House Orphanage. “She weighed only eight pounds and was so malnourished, I didn’t think she was going to make it,” says Joseph. “Here we were able to provide her formula and VitaMeal, which helped nurse her back to health.”
Thanks to generous VitaMeal donations, Aliana and many others have a healthy, happy life.
