On July 12th, we got a letter from Soroti hospital with the question if we could help with baby Rose. The mother was operated and she was not doing well. The grandmother was too busy to look after the baby and the sick mother. We went to the hospital, we could still talk with the mother and she was very relieved that we would care for her baby. We prayed for the mother, because she was really very sick and weak. But she picked up and went home, last week she suddenly came to visit Rose, she was doing much better, but still weak. Today she came again, together with her mother. It was so nice to see them sitting, enjoying the baby. I am so happy for Rose that she still has her Toto (mother) and even her Tata (Grandmother) to care for her when she goes home!!
Friday evening Elias got a phone call from one of the secondary schools where we have some of our older children in boarding school. One of them, Catherine was very sick. Elias went to get her and we brought her to our neighbour's clinic. She was very weak, she was put on IV drip and other medications. On Saturday evening she was discharged and we took her in Amecet to recover. She was still weak, but this morning she was so much better, she could talk and laugh and eat, like you see on this picture (at the right). She enjoys being with her old friends (Mary and Sarah) and is getting better. We have several of our older children in boarding schools in Soroti. we are still caring for them, we support with the school fees and we help when they are sick. We have good contacts with all of them.
