Salha and Samia Mohamed

June 2019- Two new babies came to Neema today. They were born June 10, 2019. Salha weighs 4.4 lbs. (2 kg) and Samia weighs 4.1lbs (1.9 kg).They were born at a small clinic outside Arusha. Their nineteen year old mother came to the big hospital in town but died of postpartum hemorrhage in the waiting room. They were her first. The young father and grandmother came to Neema with the babies to see where they will be cared for until they are able. When the babies are a bit bigger they should be able to go home with the grandmother.  Update:  Unfortunately babies sometimes come to Neema Village compromised.  Salha was one of those babies, and she has not survived.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
