We have good news – Huruma has started suckling, which is another improvement! The boy has an appetite and as soon as we get rid of the cough (he caught an infection), he will definitely start to gain weight quickly. So far we’ve been keeping him warm in the infant warmer you funded, but now that the sun is slowly coming out from behind the clouds, we’re taking him out for short walks.
As for the situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo itself – the local Red Cross, supported by Unicef, came to visit Ntamugenga. They delivered malaria drugs, basic antipyretics and a small amount of therapeutic food for the children, which gave us some relief! You, on the other hand, continue to be the only source of food aid for adults and older children, as it is only thanks to your donations that the staff at the nutrition centre can shop for and distribute meals to those most in need. Huruma’s mother is among them. Many thanks to all 134 people who donated meals to single mums in Congo. This is now truly a priority need!
