A remarkable recovery already! We visited the baby we took to the clinic yesterday and the baby, Kim and mom are doing much better. They will be released tomorrow. BTW Kim means doctor in Nuer.
Long story short, we came across this mom and baby (family of one of FHI host homes). The baby was so sick so our team split up to take mom and baby to the clin...ic. The baby has pneumonia and 2 types of malaria (#1 killer of children here)! Mom has malaria and typhoid! They will be fine in a few days. Thanks ladies - Adrianna Trail and Dorothy Hunt for your hard work and sacrifice.
This is a really good idea of a Host Home for Father's House. This single mom not only cares for one FH child, she has taken in these two children who were without any family and homeless in Gambela. Beautiful people here!!!
Tom Parton and Lloyd Parton have been in Gambela for three weeks now and another team will leave in just over a week to join them. There's been a lot of progress made with securing the property that we purchased, teaching leaders, and following up on the children and families who are in FHI's care. It's been nonstop but productive. The foundation is finally going in on a 10 foot stone wall around the perimeter of the land. Thank you for your continued support and prayers.
FHI is hosting a 5k Fun Run/Walk fundraiser at 9 am on Sat. Sept 16. All proceeds will benefit FHI which is a missions organization dedicated to helping the poor, orphans, and children. We currently have projects in Africa that need immediate attention as we care for 40+ children left orphaned from the war in South Sudan. These projects include construction for a larger home base as well as placement of children into loving homes and families. Ongoing needs include housin...g, medical care, education, clothing, and food at a minimum.
We have a 5k and a shorter run for the kids or those wanting a shorter distance (Little Monkey Run). Wear your animal print, get outside, get fit, and support a good cause!
FREE Medal and Tshirt with entry. Prizes for top finishers!
Early bird price of $25 for 5k til Aug 1 and $15 for Little Monkey Run.
