New Children in the RC

 This is Mackenson.  He is 2 years old and weighs 18 pounds 10 ounces.  This is his second time with kwashiorkor.  He has 2 siblings.Mackensonn6

This is Mysslande.  She is 1 1/2 years old and weights 23 pounds.  She has mild kwashiorkor.  She has had a high fever for 5 days with a stiff neck.  She is currently on a feeding tube due to not having enough strength to eat.

This is Oramene.  She is almost 2 months old and weighs 8 pounds 8 ounces.  She has gained 2 pounds in a month.  This would be good but she has kwashiorkor, so this is water that her body is retaining.  Grandma brought her.  Her mother does not want to take care of her.  She does not want to put her up for adoption.  She just will not sit and take care of her.  So grandma has been trying, but cannot afford the milk and need to work to provide for her own children that are still at home.

This is Prosper.  He is 5 years old and weighs 20 pounds.  He has diar, vomiting and fever.  We already have one of his siblings in the RC now.  There are 3 other siblings at home.  Father died about 1 year ago.

All of these kids except Oramene (the baby) are on the medika mamba program.

    May God bless all these kids and may they know the love of Jesus that you and the staff are showing them. You are truly the hands and feet of Jesus!

    Rob said it all – blessings flow from the Spirit to your hands to these children. Praying for you, the nannies, the kids. What do you do for the babies too little for the medika mamba? Is formula enough?

    Hello,
    I’ve been reading your blog for a couple weeks now and it’s so touching. You are doing a wonderful work there.
    My daughter is at Ruuska Village (Barbara Walker) helping out. I thought it would be fun if she could get to meet you while she is there. How far are you from them?
    Email me privately if you get the chance!
