The dreadful consequences of teenage pregnancy continue to leave innocent children neglected and vulnerable, denying them the right to healthy and fulfilling lives. That is why Bringing Hope to the Family is committed to delivering work that improves the health and wellbeing of children in families and communities around the Kyenjojo district.
We received yet another baby under heartbreaking circumstances. A one-day-old infant was buried alive by his teenage mother immediately after he was born. Fortunately, a good samaritan who was collecting firewood rescued him and delivered him to Hope Again Medical Centre in a critical condition. He was diagnosed with Tetanus, a potentially fatal bacterial infection, and has been receiving treatment from our clinic. The medical team has played an important role in restoring his life, much as he still needs serious medical attention.
We thank God for his life and are pleased to announce that he has found love and care at Home Again Children’s Home in Kaihura where he joins other children who have had a second chance at life.
