Mercy for Mercy.

This is Mercy, she was brought yesterday. A very small little baby, as you can see with the size of the bottle next to her, her weight is only 1.7 kg. Her mother died, she was HIV+ and died 4 weeks after giving birth to Mercy. So Mercy is 4 weeks old!!! We took her in, started milk formula, which she is tolerating well and she is fed every two hours. She is drinking fair. She is beautiful and we pray she will pick up.
Next week the schools start again, after a long holiday of 2 months! Simon is very busy this week, we have some children who passed P7 (the highest class of the primary school) and will go now to Secondary school. Some others want to change, so today Simon went to the village to visit all our secondary students to talk with the families and see what is the best for them. Our Harmony Primary school did well last year with the P7 students. Here is P7 a very important class, it determines where you will go for your secondary education. This was our third P7, and for the first time we had two students in the highest level and all the rest was in the second highest level. That is good and it says something about the level of education in our school. We would love to see more students in the highest level, but we will go step by step!
