I had an urge to call our friend Ruth in Tanzania yesterday. She is caring for a family in one of the outlying villages in desperate need. The clinic is building a hut for them on our farm so they can work the land, have a place to life and access to much needed health care. I asked how we might help, this was the reply.
That is not too bad nutritionally I don't think?
It is of course not enough for ****, but we are giving him plenty of extra protein and vitamins)
Mama Ndugu brought the loveliest sprightliest little 3 year old girl while I was doing ward rounds. She was really cute with braids and pink t shirt and trousers : a picture of lovely life and health ..and asked me if I rembered her: I admitted I did not : I had seen her 1/2 year before weighing 5 KG *(2 1/2 years old at 10 pounds) with undiagnosed TB. We referred her for Tb treatment and she was given food help from Familia Moja (Restless Hearts!!!!) and now she weigh 13 kg and is : amazing!
I wish I had my camera but it is broken!!!!
You just would have loved it!
God bless Ruth
