Two month old, Yohanna, was brought to Neema after his mother died. His family is Maasai from a remote village and it was not easy to get into the village when Sylvia Pape and the Soicial Welfare people went in to pick up the baby. It appeared the mother had not been able to get out to go to the hospital. Lack of adequate medical care has been a problem for the Maasai moms for a long time and accounts for many deaths. Yohnana had been nursing so he is missing his mom and it has been a hard transition for him. But in a few days he was much better. Neema has many babies and we are needing some monthly support for these little ones. Even as little as $30 a month will help us buy formula and food and pay their nannies. Thank you for helping
Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.
