Fighting for life--

Today we received a call from the hospital asking for help with a tiny little newborn named Fousseny. Fousseny is a two and half month old twin. His brother died shortly after the twins were born.

At two and half months old, Fousseny weighs only 700 grams (about 1 ½ pounds). Fousseny and his mama recently spent 2 weeks in the hospital in the city and when they returned to the village Fousseny weighed a little over 3 pounds. But, in the last three weeks he has lost all of the weight that he had gained while in the hospital.

After teaching Fousseny's mama how to prepare the formula, how to clean and sterilize the bottles, and especially to use only pure water, we enrolled him in our village milk program.

Mama will bring Fousseny to our house each week to be weighed and she will be given more milk as she needs it.

Please pray with us that Fousseny will thrive and very quickly regain the weight that he has lost!

In common usage, only a child who has lost both parents due to death is called an orphan. When referring to animals, only the mother's condition is usually relevant.
