Mitch Albom: Haitian student torn between college in Michigan and his earthquake-ravaged family (Detroit Free Press)

Gaelson

Grade: Primary 1

Birthday: November 10

With the help of Espwa Berlancia, a malnutritional clinic where many of our kids volunteer, Gaelson has overcome severe malnutrition. He later received life-saving care for a previously untreated pulmonary infection through the assistance of a group of generous doctors and volunteers culminating in surgery at Children’s Hospital in Michigan. He was excited to be around children his own age and quickly made friends. He’s very silly and mischievous, and may just be our best dancer. Funny and outgoing, he loves to eat and is helpful with chores in the kitchen.
