Nosim

Baby Nosim is about a week old.  Her Maasai mom died and the grandmother and father, along with Rick Morro, a friend, brought the baby in.  The family is Ngorongoro Crater Maasai, who are the only tribe allowed to live in the crater.   They do not feel they can take care of such a little baby so Neema is happy to set in until the baby can return home.  It is very hard for Maasai to provide clean water, sterilize bottles, buy formula after a new mom has died.  Many babies whose mom dies will not be able to survive to age 5 without a mom.  Our Save The Mothers program is helping with this problem but with six million Maasai it will take a while to train enough TBAs (traditional birthing attendants)  to make a difference.  You can help by sponsoring this little Maasai baby.  Bless you


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.
