In August 2019 Miria moved to the Sonrise Baby’s Home. Miria has been staying at the Baby’s Home since the beginning of August. When she was born, Miria’s mother had to undergo a C-section. Unfortunately she did not wake up from the anaesthesia, which left Miria without her mother. The father drinks and it was not safe to leave Miria with him. Also the means in the village were missing to take care of her. It is good to know that the little one is now in caring hands at Sonrise Baby’s Home.
In July and August 2018 we received triple growth again at Sonrise Baby’s Home. Lydia, 5 weeks (left), Mercy Adet, 3 years (middle) and Kathryn Ipulet, 1 year (right) . Lydia’s mother died at birth, her twin a few days later due to lack of food. The family could also feed Lydia only with a little milk and water, so that she was very malnourished after a very short time. Sonrise will now take care of Lydia and feed her. Mary was only 15 years old when Mercy was born. She could barely feed Mercy, so she asked Sonrise for help. Sonrise will take care of Mercy until hopefully Mary will be able to take her back sometime. Kathryn’s mother was HIV positive and died one day to a bad migraine. The father has several other children, hardly any time for Kathryn and too little food for everyone. Since most relatives ofWeiterlesen / Continue reading
In April 2018 we received triple growth in Sonrise Baby’s Home. Akol Haggai, 5 months (left), Jennifer Kisakye, 1 year (middle) and Bethany Nabwire, 1 1/2 years (right) . Haggai’s mother is currently looking for a job and hopes to be able to take him back in three years at the latest. Jennifer’s mother died shortly after giving birth. Her grandmother could hardly care for her due to the large number of her other grandchildren. That’s why she arrived at Sonrise Baby’s Home very malnourished. Jennifer’s mother was only 18 years old when she was born. Bethany’s mother was 19 years old when she got pregnant. Her father does not support her so Sonrise takes care of Bethany until she is three years old. Then her mother hopes to take care of her again. It is wonderful to know that the three are in good hands at Sonrise Baby’s Home.Weiterlesen / Continue reading
In March 2018 we received a new baby at Sonrise Baby’s Home. Ruth, 5 weeks old. Unfortunately, as so often in Uganda, her 18-year-old mother died giving birth to Ruth. Her father does not feel able to take care of the newborn and the grandmother already has too many grandchildren in care. It is reassuring to know that Ruth is now in good hands with Auntie Peace at Sonrise Baby’s Home.
On January 5th, 2018 we received a new baby to the Sonrise Baby’s Home. Brian, 3 weeks old. His mother died giving birth to him. His father, a farmer, can’t take care of him. He works very hard to feed himself and his siblings. For this reason, he has too little time and too little money for a newborn baby. It’s reassuring to know that Brian is now receiving the perfect care of Auntie Peace.
