REGINALDA FINDS A LOVING HOME
At Thursday’s baby formula give out, a record 36 infants were weighed and given formula. Our staff was shocked when a 12-year-old girl walked in with a tiny infant girl whose Grandmother is supposed to be caring for her. The girl stated her Grandmother is sick, and unable to care for Reginalda, a 7‑month-old, VERY malnourished infant, who weighed in at only 4 kg/8.8 lbs.
Anna, our Children’s Director, called me immediately, for the infant had lost 300 grams in 7 days! This meant she wasn’t being fed. She had only a mild cough with no sign of a serious illness, PTL, just very hungry! I called Social Services, who immediately placed the baby into our care until the situation was investigated.

A trip to Granny’s mud hut revealed an elderly grandmother who wasn’t truly sick, just didn’t want the infant. Reginalda was placed with Foster Mother Angelina, Head House Mother for the Ostrich House kids, where 18-month-old Quiston lives.
Reginalda, “Reggie” for short, needs LOTS OF PRAYER and a $40/month sponsor who will uphold her in daily prayer.
With her being severely underweight, our staff has begun a 6 month high protein food program to help her overcome her low weight.
THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS EMERGENCY RESCUE POSSIBLE THROUGH YOUR FAITHFUL LOVE GIFTS.
SEPTEMBER FOOD GIVE OUTS IN PROGRESS!
Time flies, for 4 weeks have passed, thus making this week the right time to roll out the trucks and load’em up with corn and beans. Two major villages were served this week, with 3 more scheduled for next week.
Below are a few photos of those you support through this massive food program.
Even the youngest of orphans love helping Granny fetch their Love Gift
Ophaned youngsters receive salt, while Granny picks up their beans.
Everyone gives a helping hand on food distribution day!
Grannies and Aunts prepare their Love Gifts into smaller bundles for the trip to their mud hut.
THANK YOU FOR HELPING THESE INNOCENT ONES OVERCOME THEIR MALNOURISHED STATE.
