an update on mavinga:

from my friend, j, at mozi esme:
Hey Dani,

I heard good news today that Mavinga is feeling better. He has malaria, which many kids here die from due to lack of treatment, but with the proper treatment, he'll be fine. (By the way, I didn't mention on my blog, but I finally learned that his mother was killed by a crocodile. Not a big problem here, but definitely a problem further up north where he lived.)

I'm hoping to get some photos up from a day-care/food center for AIDS orphans that we've been drilling a well for nearby. I haven't had a chance to get out there, but my husband was working there on Friday. Some of those stories are incredibly tragic.

Thanks again for posting about Mavinga on your blog.


thank you, GOD!!!

please, continue to pray for him, though, please:)
little mavinga has a long road ahead of him...

love and blessings,
dani xx

Oh dear, malaria, that's pretty serious. I hope he gets better with the proper medication.

I don't know how you are able to do what you do, but Thank You!
Blessings to you and your family and praying that he recovers from the malaria.

With proper medication and care i hope Mavinga continues to heal and get stronger everyday.
How sad, but it must give a tremendous sense of worth working with these orphans that j's husband does.
Thanks for updating us on Mavinga's prognosis.
