Being in Angola is always a heart-wrenching experience, but we are seeing incredible improvements at our clinics every day. Here are Sarah’s thoughts as she witnesses the horror and the hope in Angola.
I’m with Saving Moses here in Angola where we are providing therapeutic formula every day, 4-6 times a day!
I would love to bring you with me to meet these heroic moms and their lovely babies because you would be deeply touched to hear their stories, to sense their strength and watch their genuine love. Every time I come here I meet new moms and get to catch up with some moms and babies from previous years. Today, we were able to visit with Angelina and her little girl Desorae, as well as Marcella and her son Belito, both families who we have met with for a few years now. Both moms & their babies are doing extremely well!
To be really honest with you, these trips are always really hard on my heart (it’s extremely difficult to see babies who are emaciated or bloated because of malnutrition and are frequently inches from death). But I must also say that this trip has been really rewarding because I am also able to see the MASSIVE difference we are able to make every day by providing therapeutic formula. It brings me indescribable fulfillment to know that we are feeding not just today’s babies but also investing in each baby’s potential and future. How could we do anything less?
