Baby Martha went HOME.

Sunday evening around 8.30 pm Martha passed away. After 3 weeks life full of sickness, injections, blood transfusion and on the oxygen machine, Martha has peace now. She died in the arms of Willemijn, one of the Dutch volunteers. We are very sad, we really tried all we could, but it was too much for her little body. This morning Simon went for a little coffin and they brought the body to the village, where the family will bury her.
Right now there are concerns for the twin sister, Esther, she has malaria and also developed a bronchi pneumonia. She is now at the oxygen machine.

I had said that when all the 6 baby;s are above the 2 kg. we will have soda's to celebrate, and this morning all the baby's were above the 2 kg! We will not have the soda today, we are still mourning Martha, but the soda will come, because we celebrate life and not death!
