TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK
Houses 6 (Zebras) and 7 (Leopards) work hand-in-hand together to ensure their 8 infants are well cared for whenever a Foster Mother needs to run to the market, or just take a break. Better known as a “Built-In Baby Sitter” service.
The famous 8 Foster Mothers of Houses 6 and 7 with their fast-growing crew of infants.
Foster Mother Gilda, far right, front row, hosts the youngest infant in our family, 5 month old, Baby Susana. Gilda is also the Head Foster Mother for both these houses, a position she earned by studying basic medical care that help her discern if an infant is beginning an illness.
She personally checks each infant daily, then gives me or Children’s Director, Anna, a “Heads Up” if a problem exists. This is a big help to both Anna and I, and provides the infants with faster medical care.

Baby Chebane is Mr. Gigglesfor sure. He loves to laugh! Foster Mother, Ernista says he is a real joy to live with.
YOUR LOVE GIFTS MAKE THIS POSSIBLE. THANK YOU FOR GIVING THESE HIGH-RISK INFANTS A CHANCE AT A HAPPY LIFE.
WATER WELL REPAIRS MEANS A HEALTHIER LIFE FOR REMOTE VILLAGERS
November is not only the hottest month (37°C/99°F), but the driest month when many hand pump water wells go dry. Our water well team is quick to repair any broken well in Balama District, for no water leaves the village prone to Dysentery or Cholera from drinking dirty water.
Last week our Nacacca Pastor called, begging help. It meant going the extra mile as our team had to be called in to make this afternoon repair. The water well repair team leader, Manel, also drives our 7‑ton-truck to deliver food to the 500 orphans and widows in Meluco District. His truck was loaded and ready to pull out at 4 a.m. the next morning.
The well couldn’t wait 3 days for Manel to return, so his team “went the extra mile” and got it repaired in 4 hours that afternoon. Since the pipe glue had to dry overnight, Manel’s assistant, Mario, went out to unlock and test the well the next morning.
To prove to me that the well works, Mario, who has a new smartphone, sent me a video of our Pastor pumping the well. Lots of happy people were waiting in line behind Mario to receive this precious water.
Repaired water well means life and health to this village.
