This is the first time in a very long time that I have turned away kids from the RC. So far today I have admitted 4 and gave 3 children appointment to return in two weeks. There are 3 more kids with kwashiorkor sitting on the benches waiting to be seen by the nurses. I will make the decision about them soon. The 4 that we admitted today will not be alive in 2 weeks without some kind of help. The other 3 have a fighting chance to live if their parents will work with them. We have no beds left in the RC. Tonight we will be making beds on the floor with blankets and whatever we can find for the remaining kids.
I need everyone to pray for these kids. Pray for them to live. Pray for their families.
I need you to pray that the families that have kids that are ready to return home come and pick up their kids so that we have room for other.
I need you to pray for our staff who are overwhelmed and doing there best to take care of everyone.
I need to hire extra staff members for at least a month. We need to hire 7 new nannies immediately–like today. We are doing the best we can with the resources we have at this time. For these 7 staff member I will need $100 a piece for their pay. This is only a total of $700 that I need to raise immediately. If you can help with this urgent need please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Please pray and share this need with others. If we can raise more that $700 that would be great and we could take in some more children. Overwhelmed and praying for miracles here at RHFH.
