Yacinta Lyaseri Mollel

Born in a remote Masai village eighty miles from Arusha, Yacinta, her sister Lucia, and brother Frankie were all in trouble. Few multiple birth babies survive in Africa. Neema House has been providing formula for Yacinta and her siblings since February 2012. She and her sister have done well, while her little brother, Frankie, has been fragile, and has lived at Neema House for continued care. Now, Yacinta and her sister are toddlers and doing well at home, so Neema’s direct care for them has been completed. We continue to visit her village from time to time so that we can monitor her progress.

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.
