If you divide 350,000 into 10.6 billion, you get $30,285. That amount is the amount each orphan would have received if that money would have been given to them on that one day in 2010, instead of on “stuff” for ChristmUS!
That amount of money would have been enough to have each orphan adopted into a family, anywhere in the world, plus probably have a little spending money left over!
1 in 5 children in Haiti die before age 5 from preventable causes.
For the Haitian people that survive, a large majority live on less than $1 a day.
Also, for the Haitian people that survive those first critical years, the average lifespan is then 60 years.
Take the $30,285 figure given, divide by 21,900 days, which equals 60 years....
You get $1.40 per day!
1. There would no longer be an orphan crisis in the country of Haiti.
2. Each orphan would have at least been able to survive and live for 60 years.
Clinging to a few certain scriptures. I pray they speak to you as they have us. Love you all!
