Our project managers will be leaving in some weeks for their trip to Benin!

They will of course make a stop in the regions of Zou and Atacora, where Aleimar is managing the project ‘Nurse me’. The managers are going to monitor the project as well as distribute milk powder and other staples.

 

In the meanwhile, what is going on in the Hospital of Tanguieta and in the three accomodation centres?

Holidays are over and kids are finally coming back!

Stephanie is coming back too!

 

Stephanie is a lovely 5 years-old girl, hosted in our Natitingou centre.

She arrived in our centre only few months old: her mother died in childbirth, her dad is a nomadic herdsman. She was in desperate conditions, sick and undernourished, weighting 2,5kg only, with the doctors saying she had next to zero hope.

Love, care, attention and milk powder worked wonders.

5 years later, Stephanie is a wonderful kid. Vibrant, lively, tall and beautiful. Nice with everyone. A good and hardworking student, as well as a great friend.

For the first years of her staying at the centre, she was nearly abandoned by her family. But right when our hopes were running aground, her dad begun visiting her regularly. What a joy to see Stephanie jumping into his arms. Seeing the father and the daughter playing and cuddling each other really makes us hope that soon the he will welcome Stephanie back, and that they will become a family again.

 

Stephanie was rescued thanks to the project ‘Nurse me’, but there are many other kids experiencing the same, if not worst, condition. Much is still be done to fight malnutrition in Benin and save innocents babies like Stephanie from hunger.

By supporting and donating to ‘Nurse me’ you can really make a difference. You can do it here

Good news for our children: holidays have just begun!

Many orphans are going to go back home and see and visit their parents and relatives – they can’t wait! However, the youngest ones who need to be looked after 24/7 are going to stay with nuns and “mamas” for their security.

The reception centers will be up and fully running by September immediately after the end of the rainy season. This period is rich in fruit and vegetables – nothing better than that for our centres, where nuns and “mamas” can more easily make up for food shortages likely to happened in the dry season.

We’ve already starting raising new funds to provide our children and babies at Tanguieta Hospital in Zou and Atacora regions with milk powder and food supplies. As soon as a sufficient amount is reached, it’ll be distributed to our three centres. A monitoring and distributing trip has been already scheduled in November. Crossed fingers!

Thanks a lot for your awesome support – these children, our local and Italian operators and us are really grateful for your thoughtful help! Much must still be done to fight malnutrition in Benin and save innocents babies from hunger, but any effort is worthy if made together!

Thank you again thousands of times!

First of all, we would like to thank you all for the great support you gave us during the Little by Little campaign. Thanks to your commitment, the result has been even greater than we expected!

We also have important updates from the Nurse me project. In March, our Country Manager Antonella went on a monitoring trip to Benin. She visited all the centres in which the Nurse me project is active, in order to bring there the powder milk for the children. Antonella told us that the visiting moments are always full of joy! Besides supporting the milk powder supply, in these centres children’s health is constantly monitored through medical check-ups. It is always emotional to see every year those children growing up and getting healthier.

We are so grateful for all the effort you have done and that we are sure you will continue to carry forward. Without you these great achievements would be impossible!
