Three years old and weighing only 6.6 kg...

Many of our stories are sad ones, the children have sometimes suffered so much in their short life. Today was again a very sad one. A little boy was brought by his father. He is 3 years old and his weight is only 6.6 kg. He should have at least been double his weight for his age. Sagal is severely malnourished and is HIV+ as well. His mother died last month (from AIDS) the parents were separated and the grandparents brought the little boy to his father ( who has already a family). When we looked into his medical papers, we discovered that he has not taken his ARV's for one year, he was restarted just 2 months ago. He is miserable and scared. I just feel for this little man. We took him in and I went with him to the clinic, to see if there is malaria etc. Monday Janneke will take him to the HIV clinic, to see how his blood levels are. The good thing is that he likes to eat, he likes to drink milk, but he didn't want to sleep in his bed. Then I brought him a little car and that did the trick! It is a cute little boy and I can't wait to see him walking and playing around! I'll keep you informed....

Then there was another surprise this morning: one of our watchdogs had given birth to 8 puppies!!!! We were not so ready for it, so today we cleaned out the store to prepare a seperate place for the mother and her little ones.
