Greetings from Gloria!!!

 This blog is specially for all the people who know Gloria! Gloria has been with us in 2010/2011 and we have had a lot of struggles with her. She can't walk and we have gone through braces, plaster and exercises with her. I wrote several blogs about her in the beginning of 2011 (these legs are made for walking). Gloria went back to her grandmother. They lived in Soroti. Gloria is also HIV+ and gets the ARV's. Last year the grandmother came to tell us that they were going back to the village, very far in the North. they got a letter to get the ARV's in a health centre there and they left. We didn't see them since that time. I was so happy to see them this morning, her grandmother came to bring her. She is looking very good, better than the time she lived with her grandmother in Soroti. The village life is doing her good. She has grown and is not scared, like she used to be. Her grandmother loves her and she cares very well for her. She took her for a wheel chair to Kumi, but there they gave her again braces. They will not do much for her, but it shows how much the grandmother cares for her. They live too far for us to visit them, so we gave her some money to buy seeds and ground nuts to plant in her garden. She was very happy with that. I wanted to share her pictures with you, because many volunteers who has been with us, loved her so much and I know that you sometimes have wondered: how is Gloria? Auntie's,  thank you for caring for Gloria, your effort was not in vain!


  1. Wat GEWELDIG om weer over Gloria te lezen Els, echt super! Wat fijn dat oma zo goed voor haar zorgt! Wat is Gloria groot geworden! Bedankt voor de foto's en het delen!

  2. Echt ontroerend en hartverwarmend om haar weer te zien en inderdaad zo fijn om te lezen dat haar oma zo goed voor haar zorgt:) Ik hoop echt voor haar dat ze wat mobieler mag worden of misschien al blijven.
    Gaaf ook voor jou Els, om te blijven zien hoe het met 'jouw' kinderen gaat als ze thuis wonen. Bemoedigend hoop ik;)

  3. Gloria, wat is ze groot geworden! Wat fijn dat ze zo een lieve oma heeft die goed voor haar zorgt. Moeilijk in te denken dat ze "vroeger" altijd zo veel huilde en wat fijn te horen dat het nu zo goed gaat! Well done!
