Medical Care Sponsorship


1 in 5 Haitian children do not live to see their fifth birthday. There are many factors that contribute towards this heart wrenching statistic; including lack of access to medical care, malnutrition and poverty.  Together we can change the outcome for children living in these situations through our medical sponsorship program. A monthly sponsorship ensures access to healthcare for a sponsored child in these ways:
  1. Sponsored children who live in the community of Kenscoff will have access to our comprehensive pediatric medical clinic. 
  2. Children who live in one of our remote feeding program locations will have access to local comprehensive healthcare facilities.
  3. Families benefit knowing their sick children can receive medical attention with no cost to them, allowing families to focus on basic needs such as food, education and shelter.
 
Chances for Children will send each sponsor a quarterly Medical Clinic newsletter and quarterly updates on their sponsored child.
