Right outside our door…

We have some new neighbors just outside our door, who live in the bushes across the street. The woman is a single mom with three little boys, ages 2, 4, and 6. We think the owner of the land allowed her to build a little shack, just enough for one bed and a shelf for dishes and eating utensils. This small house has only three walls; the back wall is the wall surrounding a school. The family has no electricity nor running water. The children do not have enough to eat and do not have enough clothes to wear. When we saw two of the children without undergarments or pants, we knew what we had to do. This small house was clean inside and had some hanging artificial flowers to make it more pleasant. Our clinic doctor, Dr. Wanitha, examined the three children and the mother. The children are malnourished and have some other medical problems that need further tests. We will keep you posted.
