Lois came in Amecet in August, her mother died after Lois was born with a cesarean, her mother was only 16 years old and HIV+. Her grandmother was murdered one year ago, so the great grandmother was the one who would be caring for Lois in the future. We went to test Lois also for HIV and we had a party, because Lois is HIV-!!!! She is just over three months old and weighs 5 kg.
This morning the great-grandmother came and we asked her if she was ready for Lois, and she told us proudly that she ready. She has been saving money and had bought a matrass and a plastic so Lois would not damage the new matrass! She was carrying two pieces of cloth in her bag, she had bought to carry the baby in. We were really blessed to see this old lady, being ready to take care of Lois. We gave her some clothes, a mosquitto net, drinking cup and milk money. The lady seems to be poor, so we want to help her and she will come every two weeks for milk money, porridge flour and sugar for Lois. She will also be coming to our "comeback days" (see the previous blog).
We prayed for Lois and her great-grandmother before sending them off. That Lois will become a great blessing to her great-grandmother and that God will protect them and care for them!!!
