Meet Guerlande

Guerlande was admitted on Thursday the 22nd of July. She is 10 months old and weighs 12lbs 13oz. Guerlande came here with her mother and a neighbour. Guerlande's mother's house burned down two moths ago and since then Guerlande, her older brother and mother were staying with a family friend. Unfortunately this friend is about to move to another area so Guerlande's mother needs to find a new home where she can stay with her children. The lady who was providing accommodation for Guerlande's family was also helping the family with food which was a huge help to Guerlande's mother as Guerlande's father had passed away 8 months ago. Guerlande's mother had been breast feeding Guerlande but didn't produce enough milk because she sometimes didn't eat enough. She is a very sweet and active little girl; she crawls all over and loves to laugh with the nannies and volunteers. Guerlande will stay with us for 3 months while her mother looks for a new place for the family to live. Please pray for her adjustment away from her mother and for her mother to find a new place to live.

She is beautiful. How can we help her mother? Can we send her funds to create a business?
