Little Gem


Look at these pictures and you might think, “What a lovely newborn.” But this little boy is actually over a year old. He came to us last month weighing only 3.6kg (7lb 9oz) and showing other signs of malnutrition including light-coloured hair. He was sucking on his fingers constantly as that was his only way of coping with the hunger. Eric is now steadily putting on weight and is full of smiles. He’s even started talking a little. Director Caroline Thomas said: “We thank God that we were able to take him and care for him and feed him! I’m so happy to see him looking so much better. He was breaking my heart last week!”
