Meet Moronegoe and Morongoenyane

Meet Moronegoe and Morongoenyane, our newest additions at the safe-home.

These twins sisters come to us due to severe malnutrition.

When we met them on an outreach trip, I think our hearts all dropped when their mother told us they were almost 7 months old; their tiny limbs and skinny bodies looked hardly more than a month or two.

Their condition is a strong illustration of the compounded difficulties of living in one of the most remote, mountainous areas of Mokhotlong and trying to feed twins when food security issues run so rampant.

They've now been with us in the safe-home for five days. These five days have given us time to develop a greater understanding of their needs and each day we see progress.

Although it will likely be a few weeks before we see the trademark chubby cheeks of a baby recovering from malnutrition, we're already looking forward to the day they will be healthy enough to return home.

Hope everyone's week is off to a great start!

The safe-home continues to be busy with babies growing strong and healthy! Right now, we have ten little ones - we just brought in another set of twins on Friday, Morongoe and Morongoenyane, who we'll write more about shortly.  The Outreach team continues to be busy visiting clients throughout the surrounding mountains, making sure all our clients are recovering from the massive snowstorm we experienced a few weeks ago.

Thanks for stopping by the TTL blog and checking in on the happenings here.  As always, we appreciate the continued dedication of all of those who support TTL!
