Let me start by giving you an update on Benjamin, the baby who was set on fire by his father in March 2013 (read http://janinemaxwell.blogspot.com/2013_04_01_archive.html). Last week he had his colostomy reversed and is the happiest little boy when he celebrated his 2nd birthday with us on Wednesday, August 28th. He is incredibly musical so I just "had to" buy this little zylophone at the local market and he played it like a pro. Happy Birthday Miracle Baby Benjamin!
A few weeks ago we had to make a big “temporary” move. In order to take pressure off the El Roi home and staff we moved all our “tinies” up to Kuthula Place. The irony of that is the Kuthula Place was designed to be a “baby-free zone” where our Caregivers could go when they needed a break, a nap, a “time out” or a shower. Right now we have 13 babies under the age of six months where they are getting lots of individual attention by the Aunties who focus on our littlest ones.
We do still need funding for the appliances and furniture for the Toddler home. To date we have raised $14,637 of the $30,000 that is needed to finish this week. If you can give, please do so today at https://heartforafrica.secure.force.com/pmtx/cmpgn__ministore?id=701C0000000VB2s
