Checking up on our little girl

By Rainbow Mike, May 19 2016 03:59AM

We made a visit to our little girl (Lowari Lokomolo) now 8 months old and it was good to find her in a fair condition. The grandmother is doing a great job in keeping hygiene of the baby and the  home. The baby is eating well and healthy except for one problem with the eye. She got eye infection and straight away we got her on  treatment. Not only her but most of the kids in this village (Nasapir) are struggling with eye infections due to poor hygiene. We met an old man who said he last bath in Longor Dam in year 2014. Their complain is that all the near by bore holes water are broken down and their is no one concern about fixing (repair) the bore holes. Their women moves long distances to look for water only for cooking and bathing very little children.


We shall return to check on the baby's health after 5 five days of treatment. And hopefully take more food for the baby after one month. 


The recent baby (Monyes Micheal Moru) now 3 months old we received at shalom is adopting well to bottle feeding and crying has reduced to normal.


Thank you and keep shalom in your prayers.
