CHEBANY STANDS INDEPENDENTLY!
Another milestone for baby Chebany, as he finally grasped how to balance. After taking this photo, I gently took his hands and leaned him forward to nudge him into taking 2 steps before he sat down.
Chebany stands independently for the first time.
We are very happy for this little boy, who had a very rough start in life. His mother passed away when he was 11 days old, leaving a very sick Chebany in the care of an unloving father and uncle.
Chebany was admitted to the hospital for a serious respiratory infection, where his father abandoned him 1 day later, and hasn’t been seen since.
With loving care, lots of medical help, and proper nutrition, this fragile, malnourished infant now weighs 8.4 kg/18.5 lbs. at 13 months of age.
Everyone calls him Alegria (JOY), as he is smiling or laughing most of the time.
WE PRAISE GOD FOR EVERY MILESTONE HE MAKES, AS HE HAS BEATEN THE ODDS AGAINST HIM THANKS TO JESUS’ HEALING POWER.
CLEAN WATER = LIFE
Our water well repair team has been super busy throughout December. Hand pump water wells are PUMPED 24 HOURS A DAY from October until the rainy season begins, as all hand dug bucket wells dry up. Excessive use leads to breakdowns, and no other water sources are available to 1,000’s of people.
Pulling out the ‘guts’ of a broken water well as 2 inner tubes had cracked.
Repairing a broken top tube in a well doesn’t require pulling out all the tubes.
Our team repairs hand pump water wells each year in both Balama and Meluco counties which serves the village orphans that your love gifts support.
From December 27th to the 30th our team repaired 5 high use water wells in Meluco County. These wells are the sole source of water for more than 10,000 people.
Put it all back together and the reward is clean water for the village.
These are YOUR LOVE GIFTS AT WORK, for the lack of clean water brings disease and death, leaving behind more orphans.
THANK YOU FOR SAVING LIVES BY SUPPORTING THIS ESSENTIAL PROJECT.
