Counting Our Blessings On the Twelve Days of Christmas: Full Tummies
On the second day of Christmas, we send the sincerest appreciation to everyone who has supported our nutrition programs this year. Many babies who come into our hands need specialized formula to survive. It is hard to believe from this photo, but little Barbara was found shortly after her birth, weighing just 1.2 kilograms. Thankfully, her orphanage called us immediately, and we were able to get her to the hospital for emergency treatment. We then arranged for her to start receiving specialized PreNan formula, made especially for premature infants. As you can clearly see, Barbara is now thriving. She is in the 50th percentile for children her age, and she is crawling everywhere. Barbara’s life was saved because someone cared enough to support her special nutritional needs. To a baby, happiness really is a full tummy. And for all of us at LWB, happiness is knowing we can help provide that gift when orphanages are in need.
