Anna is struggling...

Little Anna, who was brought to Amecet on Sunday, is not doing so well. We had taken her to the doctor on Sunday and she was put on antibiotics, but the fever is still there and the medication seems not make any difference.We went back to the doctor on Tuesday morning and we did some more tests, she has a serious urine tract infection, and she is only 2 weeks old!!! She is now on IV medication, but this morning we gave her a NG tube, it takes her so much effort to drink, and she is not drinking enough, so this will help her. We are also a bit concern about her tummy, it is swollen. All in all, we need your prayers for this little girl!
On this picture Simon and Elias are visiting one of our older children who was resettled in the village. The girl came on Saturday and her medicines (ARV's) were finished and there were problems at home. We gave her medicines in the weekend and she went to the hospital for medicines on Monday morning. We helped her with transport money to go back home and we mobilised the clan and the elders of the community to meet on Wednesday. Important meetings are always with the elders of the community, the L.C.1, (local counsellor 1). They had a good meeting, it was not really all true what the girl had told us. So there was open discussion and some steps were taken in the right direction. Lately Simon and Elias have been visiting several of our elder children in their communities. To have the right picture, you have to be right there, in the village.
