Neema Jacobo

This little newborn came to Neema Village this morning, Sept 6, 2022 . Her name is Neema Jacobo and she weighed 2.3kg on her arrival at Neema. Her Maasai mom died at her birth. Beautiful with a full head of black curls, she is from Maria’s village, which makes number 4 babies from that village so we are talking to the leaders about doing a safe birthing seminar with the traditional birthing attendants from there. Little Neema is jaundiced so she is under the Blue light a couple of times a day. She loves being under the light.  Neema Jacobo makes 5 new babies at Neema in the last seven days.  It’s a full house.

Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.
