Adam Joins Footprints
Look just how malnoursihed Adam is.After a few unbelievable days Footprints welcomed its first new children for 2017 .
Adam and his older brother Gift came together.
Their other name is unknown, as their mother died four weeks ago. She was still unburied and the children had no identity when I met them for the first time. She had been drinking elicit brew and made a living however she could - life was desperate!
Both boys were taken in by an elderly, kind neighbour in Ukunda. Her room was no bigger than 12x12 - she tried her best but Adam is so underweight he was becoming more and more malnourished. No relatives could be found, no father and no details of ages or names.
It never ceases to amaze me that the local people will do their best no matter how little they have,with true compassion.
Footprints will work its magic and Adam will begin to thrive, with good food and plenty of love.
A few days at Footprints makes all the difference in the world.
