The first thing you notice about Jamesley is the huge smile beaming from his face. Once you get to know him you would also find out that he is a very smart and funny boy, likes school, is very patient and his love for goats is second to none.
A sponsored boy from Haiti, Jamesley was born with a spinal cord deformation which left him unable to walk. He was first referred to a surgeon back in 2010 but the appointment never took place due to the devastating earthquake and the resulting destruction of the hospital in Port-au-Prince. Tragically, his father was killed during the earthquake.
A courageous and determined young man, Jamesley touched the heart of a Chalice supporter during a visit in 2015. The supporter became Jamesley’s sponsor and raised funds to cover his first surgery. Thanks to a great surgical team and many prayers, the surgery was a success and Jamesley quickly made wonderful progress, moving around with the assistance of walking aids.
