It’s a healthy baby boy for our ‘Wobbler’ Nanny, Saumu! Safu Sadiki Msstafa was born at Leganga Hospital on August 8th, weighing 3.5kgs.

Saumu suffered from high blood pressure, dizziness and lots of discomfort for the duration of her pregnancy and after a tragic stillbirth just a year ago, she required much rest prior to the birth. Saumu has 2 other sons who are 12 and 18 years old.

Remember our Ema?! We ran into him at Sable Square eating pizza and playing on Panarottis play equipment. He ran right past us and when I yelled ‘hey Ema’, he stopped and turned around and gave me one of his big cheeky smiles!!! He is now at Watoto Kicheko – Laughter of a Child Foundation and attending school. He has grown too! So nice to see him!! We captured a few shots of him enjoying the slippery slide.
It sure was a good day today with 2 groups donating items for the children. We are so blessed to have such wonderful, kind hearted people from the Longido Secondary School who brought some donations of Soap, Washing powder, Rice, Nutritious flour, Watermelon, Bananas, Oranges, Avocados, Juice, and more. Thank you!
We received the death certificate for mama Tumaini today and on it it states the cause of death was from a ‘high spinal’ during her elective caesarean section. Such a tragic loss leaving behind this gorgeous vulnerable baby. Makes me so sad. Extra cuddles for you today sweet girl! xx
Today baby Tumaini arrived after her mother, Grace sadly died in childbirth at just 25 years old. She was undergoing an elective caesarean section at Olturumet Hospital in Ngarantoni as her first child was born this way and she died. The family have not been told why or how just that something went wrong and she died. Her parents Grace and Moses are Maasai and were happily married for three and a half years. They have a little boy called Joshua who is now 15 months old. Moses’s sister is assisting with the care of Joshua while he is at work [ Read More ]
