Ramatu April 2012

Ramatu has had a good month, she has had very few fits and is continuing to get stronger. Her speech is also getting better. When we visited with the last team she joined in with the singing and the last few times I have visited days she seems to be mingling more with the other children. She still isn't well enough to go back to school, but she seems much happier recently than she has for a long time.

Sore Foot!

Just before I was about to leave Sierra Leone in February a friend called and told me his mother had a problem with her foot, he seemed very upset so I said I would go to visit her. I was expecting perhaps a boil or a cut with a bit an an infection......when I arrived at the house I was confronted with the foot you can see in the photos here. I was able to provide some money for medical treatment which is still ongoing.

Please join me in praying for healing for this lady.

RIP Mr Roberts

Mr Roberts
Sadly Mr Roberts (also known as Blind Daniel) passed away in January. Mr Roberts was a long time resident at King George VI Home for the Elderly

Team members will have fond memories of him playing his harmonical for us, singing with us and telling us about his life and working on the railways when he was younger.

He will be especially missed by his parner in crime Mr Charles.

This is Ramatu, the girl with epilepsy who was abandoned in Kissy back in 2008. As well as the epilepsy she has also been diagnosed with Sickle Cell.

She has had a difficult year and has been hospitalised a couple of times, but at the moment she is doing quite well - she is hoping that she will be able to get strong enough to return to school.
