Sunday Snapshot #11

Our Facebook post in October led to an outpouring of loving concern for seven-year-old Rashid, who is deaf, and was not in school. Because of this, we were able to secure a place for him at a boarding school for the deaf in the town of Bo. Here he is, modeling his new school uniform. All the school fees and items he needed were provided from the funds sent by caring friends.

Rashi is on the second floor of the dormitory, where the matron they call Mama (in sign language) makes sure he is fed his breakfast, dressed and ready for school each day.

We had heard he was having trouble with malaria, so his uncle went to check on him. Nurse Mariam, of Madina Village School, sent a round of malaria treatment medicine, and the report is that he is well again, and going to classes. His mother also drops by to visit him. We'll keep checking on him, as he is one of our Madina children, so stay tuned and keep him in your hearts and prayers.
