How is it going in our Toro Babies Home you may wonder: Our little Simon is doing much better. The pain caused by the suture of the surgery is slowly diminishing, as he doesn’t cry as much as much before and seems more comfortable.
We have been busy planning for the Toro Babies Home. The ordered bottles were fortuntately delivered quickly and arrived already this monday. Matron Betty, Margaret, a social media specialist for Caritas and I spent our lunch in the Dutchess restaurant where had a little surprise – German currywurst was on the menu! From now on, Margaret is supposed to take care of the website and the social media channels of the Toro Babies Home.
This afternoon the therapists from Kyaninga CDC were at the baby home and she was doing excercies with Gift, however it seemed to be painful for her as she kept crying. Therefore, we will try to receive a second professional opinion to find ways on how we can help her. In addition, her chair needs to be adjusted of which Jackson, the physical therapist. will take charge on.
Rachel also urgently needs another chair that she can sit upright in and that strengthens her back muscles.
Our Nursery School received small tables and chairs by Indian donors. They donated a sturdy desk and a beautiful bookshelf for Irene’s office. The board has often discussed the need of televisions in the children’s home that would serve educational purposes. Our partner Gesunde Welt opposed this, but local donors have now sent six small screens that are finally installed on the wall.
Anne Genier also returned back to Fort Portal from Switzerland today. She was accompanied by her mother and godmother, to whom she would like to show around Uganda.
