Oct 25: Hope in the Faces of Children

{Today’s Blog and Photos are brought to you by Leslie Gibbs}

Moria is full of resiliency, and it is never more evident than in the children: the smiles on their faces, their quickness to hug and play ball, their eagerness to dance and learn english and math. These kids are the future, a generation that will grow up displaced from their homelands, but because of tremendous sacrifice from their parents, will be alive to grow up.

I see quiet desperation on the faces of the parents of sick kids in Moria. Medical care is not easy to access for them. Medecins sans Frontieres provides pediatric services along with us, but long lines, hours waiting, and only 2 small clinics for 10,000 patients. There is also food shortage, looming cold of winter, and constant threat of violence.

The complexity of this problem overwhelms me, but I have hope when I look into these beautiful little faces.

    I must show some appreciation to you just for rescuing me from this type of incident. Right after exploring throughout the world wide web and finding principles which are not beneficial, I believed my life was gone. Living without the strategies to the difficulties you’ve fixed through your good short article is a crucial case, and ones which might have in a wrong way affected my entire career if I hadn’t noticed your web blog. Your personal mastery and kindness in handling everything was precious. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t encountered such a thing like this. It’s possible to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this reliable and amazing help. I won’t be reluctant to recommend your web site to anybody who should get recommendations about this area.
