Baby Abu is the 2nd child we've found in such bad condition. The only other starving child we found was baby Fatuma and she couldn't swallow well due to CP. Abu can walk but is weak and sucks his thumb constantly it see ms. He's lucky to be sponsored but his family situation goes beyond normal monthly sponsorship (mom is alone selling only sugar cane) and there is a sister who seems to be about 3. Abu around 18 months to 2. They are lucky they had a mattress and net at home to share . The area of kamuli where they stay is Buwenge Mpia (the ghetto ) of kamuli. Where a few of our kids stay since rent is cheaper than in the town. its 10 mins or so walk from the tiny downtown. So we are wondering if any members would want to make a donation of any size to help with food, clothing or soap/ hygiene items and meds if needed. This will keep the family afloat for awhile until the mom can settle and figure out what else to do to earn a living. They only moved to this area a few days ago. It seems they are starting over. Any help is welcome! Abu's sis would love a sponsor also I'm sure. An extra $10 monthly for her would mean another 4-5 days of food.
Help a precious baby in such great need. The mom can't keep going by only
selling sugar cane. She won't earn enough to provide even 1 meal a day. Have compassion for those with so little.
They live in mud hut which isn't helping his condition. Too much dust all over affecting his breathing. Who will consider giving $5- $10 or more? We will provide photos each time food is taken to his home.
