Smiling and 4.6 kg. more in 2 months!!!

 Her father came to pick her and I am sure he hardly recognised her!!! Paska gained 4.6 kg. in only two months. She is also smiling and moving around.

In August, Paska was brought to us as a very unhappy, crying severe malnourished girl. She was almost 6 years old and has brain damage, probably because of cerebral malaria (?). She was not easy, she could bite you, beat you and in the beginning,she cried most of the time. She is also blind, or she sees only a bit of light. But she loves to eat and that made her the way she is now. She is also smiling a lot and loves clapping her hands. When she hears you she moves in your direction and holds your legs. She can stand and she walks at your hand. We could help with the malnurtition, but the brain damage is beyond us. There is a possibility that Paska can go to a local centre where they work with childeren with a disability. We pray that there is space for her! We keep on helping the family with porridge flour and sugar

Goodbye Paska, we will  miss you, we pray for you!
