I’m feeling very emotional whilst writing this. I’m quite upset. But I’m also very, very grateful. Grateful to three generous people who got in touch offering to help with the cost of Judith going to see a doctor about her eye infection. I’m also very grateful to Levison who took Judith to the health centre and facilitated her appointment. We made a big difference to one child today.
The doctor cleaned her eyes and gave Judith eye drops and painkillers. Just look at the difference from yesterday! She must have been so sore. Levison has to take her back again on Wednesday for a check up and hopefully they will be pleased with her progress. Should the infection continue or come back the doctor at the health centre has said they will refer her to the hospital in Chitipa. This will obviously cost more money but we are very grateful for the people who have covered this treatment and also paid a bit extra so that Levison can give the family some soap and maize.
The reason I’m feeling emotional and upset? We have helped a little girl who was in pain and whose sight may have suffered if she didn’t get treatment. We have made a difference to one little girl. We have made a difference for Judith. Not me…we. I always say it’s teamwork. I try to raise awareness and find people willing to help these very vulnerable children. But I need kind people to get involved, to sponsor, to donate, to fundraise, to raise awareness etc.
For Judith, the team has been Levison, 3 people offering some money, the doctor and me to tell Judith’s story. Also the people who donated the clothes and shoes she’s been given. Judith will never forget today. The kindness that has been shown to her will stay with her forever. I am so proud of what we are achieving for these children and will keep raising awareness and finding people who can help us continue Changing Lives Malawi.
Judith and siblings need sponsors to help them out of poverty and malnutrition, to give them the chance of a better future. It’s only £25 p/m (85p per day) to sponsor a child. Can you join our team of sponsors today and change a child’s life. Every life matters and every child deserves to be the best they can be. Judith needs you? Can you help her? firstname.lastname@example.org thanks for reading, Sarah x
