When Zainab was barely a week in Freetown was Esther got labor. Everyone was very worried, because there is no proper reception for premature, too small children. The same night is Esther indeed gave birth to a baby girl, which immediately after birth is deceased. The girl was disabled and blind. This was a great disappointment. Esther remains in Mabel's Cottage, which could arrange a nice funeral and that gives comfort.
Nowthat the Ebola virtually disappeared schools started again. Zainab, registered the mothers of Mayango, Clarence and Mabel (Nancy, Precious and Adama) and Esther for school. They are very proud to wear their uniform to go to school. They follow a general education and vocational training. Nancy and Adama learn to make clothing and Precious and Esther follow a training for beautician/hairdresser.
Umu is not as strong, she seems somewhat malnourished so should pull out all the stops to give birth to a healthy child.
The women like to go to school and are proud of their uniform. Precious once even took Clarence on her back because he was sick and she did not want to absent from school.
We implemented a recycling shop have all the clothes and household stuff. This shop is doing well, but we regulary have to refill the stock. Consequently clothing, shoes (for kids and adult) household articles and children's toys are still welcome. Please call us first before you bring your stuff to the local recycling shop. The proceeds will be donated to Mabel's Cottage.
