Newton lends a hand
As we mentioned in our last report, the St Andrews Baby Unit was ready for the final stages of a makeover and the installation of a biogas system.
We are happy to report that both of these have been successfully completed. The unit looks fantasic after a fresh coat of paint. One of the former residents, Newton, decided he had to be part of the transformation and came in to help (as you will see from our pictures). The matron is delighted with the results of the work over the past few months and the children seem to be enjoying themselves in the fresh environment.
The biogas system has been installed and within a week had started producing gas which powers a stove in the unit. The system is fed with manure from the cows and reduces the amount of firewood the staff have to use for cooking. It also means some of the food can be prepared in the main kitchen of the unit.
As far as the babies themselves go, there is more great progress. Bedan is taking his first steps now and Pricilla is potty training having mastered walking. Cecilia and Peter are standing on their own and starting to talk while John has been started on weaning food.
Thanks to everyone who has supported the St Andrews Baby Unit through GlobalGiving. We really do appreciate your valuable contribution!
