Greetings from Toro Babies Home in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Toro Babies Home wishes you all the best in whatever you’re doing especially in this period of Covid 19.
The Home is moving on well both the children and staff are all fine. The Home is moving on well with 48 children 24 girls and 24 boys. We did not get any new child in these two months.
The new twins and their sister Gorret Katusiime Gloria are now fine, but Isingoma Simon Joseph developed some complications in his stomach. The doctor said he has Hernia which will need to operated with time but it’s too painful, he cries a lot and cannot sleep well.
The Staff is fine and working hard to make the Home move on well. They appreciate the love and care you always give them. Lucy is doing a great job in cleaning the office and making the compound clean. Teacher Irene is doing well to help the children study and play in the Home with a lot of activities. She has kept all the children active and very happy.The staff members who make this Home move on very well and always putting a smile on these innocent souls. We appreciate their efforts.
We have 2 new German volunteers from Erzbistum Osnabrück since September. It is Carla and Judith who help in so many house chores like washing clothes, peeling matooke, mopping and feeding children. They have helped in the physiotherapy classes and help do exercises with the children. They normally visit the hospital with the sick children.
We have not resettled any child in these two months because of the lockdown but hopefully in November we shall resettle some.
Physiotherapy classes were done well and am happy our children are doing very well.
Murunga Stephen is also improving and the leg is healing slowly. She is going back to Kampala for review on 12.11.2021.
Keron was back from the hospital and a glad that he is improving very well. He is trying to walk but we lack a walker which can help him start walking on his own. He is very happy and pushes this old walker very well.
