Dear the World,
I greet you with all my friends.
I feel a lot of pain because of this disease [COVID-19] which is ravaging our country and all other foreign nations around the world.
I am grateful to NPH Haiti St. Damien Hospital for the support that they have provided. It will help me to finish this period of illness in good health.
Doctors and nurses are doing their job just to keep us safe and to help children fight their sickness.
I feel at risk to my family because of the coronavirus. I hope that this disease is expelled forever in our country in the whole world so that we can live in peace.
I am in St. Damien Hospital because of my sickness; my exams showed that I am suffering from leukemia.
I am sending this message to the world: please be wise.
Names have been changed to protect the privacy of the child.
"God will keep us forever in his house. Amen!"
