From the brink of death,a child who has now survived

The devastating consequences of teenage pregnancy persistently result in innocent children being left neglected and vulnerable, depriving them of the opportunity to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. This is why Bringing Hope to the Family remains dedicated to undertaking initiatives that enhance the health and well-being of children within families and communities across the Kyenjojo district.

Recently, we received another infant under profoundly distressing circumstances. A one-day-old baby was tragically buried alive by his teenage mother immediately after birth. Thankfully, a compassionate individual who was gathering firewood discovered the infant and brought him to Hope Again Medical Centre, albeit in a critical condition. The baby was diagnosed with Tetanus, a potentially life-threatening bacterial infection, and has been under the care of our medical team. While he still requires extensive medical attention, our dedicated medical professionals have played a pivotal role in saving his life.

We express gratitude for his survival and are delighted to share the news that he has found love and nurturing at Home Again Children’s Home in Kaihura, where he joins other children who have been given a second chance at life.
