One Sole (Soul) a Day
What we need is a small army of people to donate "One Sole a Day". That is about 30 cents a day or $10.00 a month. This money is so important to keeping the doors open to our crisis center. We support all these girls and their babies in every way like education, medical needs, clothes, food, vocational training and everything that parents should supply for their kids.
We don't have a steady income other than what God supplies through the generous support of people like you. One Sole a Day...that is all we ask, $10 a month. PayPal is an easy way to do this. Just click and send a one time donation or monthly support.
Our Medical Clinic
Our medical and dental area is on hold until we purchase the New Building.
Many of you have asked, “What do you need?” Here is the answer to that question.
Immediate needs are as follows...
Medical and Dental equipment: We will soon have a permanent location and need everything that you would find at any other clinic/surgery center. The smaller items we can take along in trunks or suitcases. The larger pieces we will purchase in Lima to avoid shipping and getting detained in customs, or in some cases, ship to Iquitos one item at a time and deal with the issues as they come. ;-)
- Dental instruments (Dentists we recomend that you bring your own composit materials that you are accustomed to working with)
- Ultra sound
- Band-Aids, gauze patches and tape
- Tooth brushes/toothpaste*
- Portable defibrillator
- Cavatron ultrasonic scalers
- Ultra sound machine (portable)
Medicine that we need all the time
- Vitamines, Children, adult and prenatal*
- Cortisone creams
- Anti-diarrhea medicine
- Cough medicine, liquid fever reducers for children.
- Women's health medicines for bladder, yeast and cervical infections
- Triple antibiotic creams, etc.
- Eye drops for conjunctivitis (pink eye)
- Antibiotics for untreated cuts, bug bites, open sores
- * High priority items
We need more housing options for long-term volunteers, particularly ones with families. Staff housing at POPPYS house would be a blessing.
And of course money: We have a growing number of children that we are supporting in the area of education and special needs. The foster care facility is growing rapidly. We have monthly expenses in Peru that need to be met in order to continue our work here. There is always a need for Financial Support.
We will keep posting the list on the web site and update what we are currently needing. Obviously purchasing the larger items in Iquitos is the best way. If your family or group would like to sponsor something please let me know. You can designate your financial gift toward something specific.
If any of you would like to come to Iquitos, please join one of the groups already scheduled or become a group leader in your area. I promise you will receive more then you give.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers.
