This shows Wilner walking. This was the video originally posted that introduced me to this boy. As of yesterday, June 6th, his legs are straightened and he'll be walking more normally soon!

Wilner got to the clinic yesterday and is having surgery today! Read the update from Tim Gerke about yesterday. Tonight/Tomorrow we will hopefully get word about his surgery. It is probably going on right now.
A paralyzed girl gets spine surgery by Scott. Tim and team get lots of cement and some beds for Mary Lou's Orphanage.
Need a reality check today? One of the orphanages in Haiti has 54 kids in a 1500 sq ft house, sleeping three kids to a twin mattress. Read Tim Gerke's update on Day 2 from Haiti. Pictures are included below:
Scott Nelson returns to Hopital Adventiste d'Haiti this week with Tim Gerke, son-in-law of Terry & Jeannie Dietrich. Follow there work on our blog as well as here!
To help Wilner or more people like him, please consider donating to our indigent patient fund. 100% of all donations go directly to help indigent Haitian patients who need surgery. The surgery is done right in Haiti with world class techniques, equipment, and very talented hands!
We just contacted the translator who can call Wilner today! He will tell Wilner's family that he can have his legs straightened by Dr. Scott Nelson in Carrefour the week of June 4th! Pray that Wilner is healthy and can get to the hospital to see Dr. Scott!
We need prayers that the Love A Child team in Haiti can find this boy, Wilner, and get him to the hospital in Carrefour for leg straightening surgery! We only have a couple weeks to find him and get him from Fond Parisien to Carrefour. The Love A Child staff has been looking for him, but to no avail yet. I know God can work all things out according to His plan, and that he listens to our prayers. Thanks!!!
