Latest from the Blessing program
An organization called Hope House in Nicaragua recently joined the Blessing program with 28 children. One child in particular, Ruby, is 13 years old, extremely malnourished and weighs a mere 31 pounds. Ruby was found abandoned two months ago and weighed only 18 pounds at the time. Doctors said it was a miracle she was alive. Last Thursday, we shipped Ruby and the other 27 children an eight month supply of whole food nutrition as well as advanced immune support for Ruby. We wish Ruby a fast recovery and can’t wait to see her thrive.

Not long ago, Hope House had a similar experience with another child. Ofelia, who is 4 years old, was rescued in June of 2010. She weighed 15 pounds and had never walked or talked. Hope House Caregivers said, “she was at the point of death.” When doctor’s examined Ofelia they thought it was too late for any intervention and said she would probably never walk or talk. After a short time of delicate care and giving her healthy meals and proper nutritional support, Caregivers said, “she was running all over.” Ofelia now weighs in at 35 pounds and is learning words in several languages! Hope House Caregivers say she is a miracle child and they believe the vitamins made a huge difference in her recovery.
