Sadly, as with many village births, the mother of this precious baby girl died shortly after delivery. She was born just 9 days ago in a masai village in Ngorongoro. It took more half the day for this family to travel to Cradle of Love Baby Home. Named Ndanin, she weighed just 3kgs and looked as though she hadn’t had a bath in days! Bathed, and fed, she fell fast asleep in her new home where she will stay until one of the extended family members are able to take her home.
