Ronald Amani Fortson

Meet baby Ronald: This little guy was found abandoned by a river on the outskirts of Arusha. He was found by a passerby and brought to the police, who then referred him to Neema House. We estimate he was born around the 28th of March, 2016 and is currently just over 2.5 kg and in good health. Little Ronald was named for a truly great man, Ronald Huddleston, a missionary doctor to Africa.  I would love to sit down and tell you some fun stories about the ‘ole days with Dr. Ron and his wife Maxine in Africa in the 1960s when the lions still walked the corridors of the hospital where he worked in Chimala.  Maybe some day!  Baby Ronald is fully sponsored.

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.
