Clovis was 17 when he died last year from complications of Sickle Cell. He was a dear, precious boy that we met at the orphanage in 2012. He captured our hearts with his quiet ways and tenderness. Clovis’ mother passed after the birth of his twin siblings, Stella and Sylvester. He came to be at St Martin de Porres Mission Hospital Orphanage to help care for them and keep them connected to a family member. We left an account for Clovis at the internet cafe so he could stay in touch with us throughout the year and he emailed us two days before he died. We were so heartsick to learn of his passing. When we returned this year to find his twin siblings gone from the orphanage…we felt compelled to track them down and make sure they were OK. Clovis would want us to do that. We discovered that they were in another orphanage, Harvest Children’s Home, a few villages away in Fundong. The orphanage here at St Martin de Porres is one of the few that takes infants. It is expensive to feed and care for an infant. And their policy is to send them back to their extended families when they can walk and eat real food. These twins, Stella and Sylvester had no where to go, both parents gone, their siblings still too young to support them. Not only did we find them healthy and well, but we discovered a wonderful Baptist Orphanage, Harvest Children’s Home, that took them in with open arms until they can hopefully be rejoined with their siblings. It filled our cup to see them.
