From the Spring of Hope Casebook

click to go to Spring of Hope websiteBrenda is one of our 100 children who need to be on a nutrition program. She is a 10-year-old girl who weighs 10kg where a child of 10 should weigh approx 30kg. Brenda has severe cerebral palsy, which is leading her to have severe feeding difficulties as well. She is regularly sick due to her fragile start; this sickness has often led her close to death.

go to Project Brenda on givengain.comHer mother is separated from her husband and is now alone without any support. Her only income is from her garden and what she grows. Often she is unable to go into the garden due to Brenda being so sick, which leads Brenda becoming weaker as she has nothing to eat. More of Brenda under Nutrition project on and We are currently supporting 31 children out of 100 who need nutritional support, through porridge flour, eggs, milk and in some cases potatoes. These children need more support than just this. In the last three years, we have seen 50 of our children die due to eating difficulties.

Please pray for Brenda and support her.

go to the Spring of Hope websiteMpanga Waswa is five years old and has hydrocephalus. His mother had a normal pregnancy and gave birth to twins who were born without complications. Within hours Mpanga’s birth he became sick; on medical examination, the doctor told Mama Mpanga that her child was in danger.

His head was swelling and he was developing hydrocephalus. Mpanga needed surgery; Mama Mpanga refused due to the cost, and the mother just did not have money to support him. Mpanga was sent home, as the hospital could not do anything more for him. When Mpanga was 15 months old, Mama Mpanga heard about Spring of Hope and came for help as she had lost all hope. Mpanga was able to have the surgery he needed.

Since this surgery, Mpanga has learnt to sit without support, learnt to talk and tell hilarious and interesting jokes. He is a very confident little boy who loves people and loves having fun. Mpanga would love to go to school.
