It is awful to have such sad news before the holidays, but the past few days we have been dealing with a difficult case. An infant was found abandoned by its mother in a trash heap. The child was still alive and has been taken to the hospital. Our staff in Benin is helping with the situation and monitoring its progress.
We’re thankful for our staff in Ouesse and for the medical staff at the local health center. They’re doing everything possible to help the child and it is comforting to know that there will be people who show the child love and care during the infant’s first holiday season.
