Vaccinations

Vaccines for orphans and separated children

Hepatitis B vaccinations are given to children at FCOP church homes

Testing all of our kids for Hepatitis B, has been an expensive process. We first have to test the blood of every child for the virus, because the vaccination of an infected child can kill them. We find about 5% of the kids test positive. Their treatment may require isolation. Special sanitation protocols are put in place, depending upon the virus load. The kids that are Hep B negative are vaccinated. This requires at least two trips to each church/home, and costs us about $32.00 per child without travel expenses. We still have at least a thousand to test and treat.
