Charity Comes Home

Today Charity was brought home, by Billy our Social Worker to the Happy House. Charity is 8 months old but very small and weak. Her Mum was 14 years old when she gave birth and died a month later.The Dad was the same age. The grandparents have been trying to care for Charity but it is an impossible situation. The baby was being fed on Ugali, a local dish of maize flour, not at all the food for a baby. Charity is very under nourished, but we know that in a few days of being cuddled kept clean and dry and being fed with lovley SMA milk and baby porridge she will start to flourish. She is constantly crying but she will settle and be a Happy, Happy House Baby.
