- Johanna after her operation
I have not updated in a while and wanted to do so. We are now helping 12 children and their families. All told Circle of 12 touches close to 100 people on a regular basis. For those of you who have followed Johanna’s journey, she had her leg amputated below the knee to save her life. Her original wound is pictured on our main site and I have attached a picture here. Mailona is doing well with her new family although is bothered by frequent lung ailments. Many of you know that one of our kids was for all intents and purposes raped in the Batey and at 15 years old and with special needs is now pregnant. We are trying to start a medical fund for her so she can be seen regularly at Hospital El Buen Samaritano. Carmela continues receiving Physical Therapy. Cristofer who had been learning sign language at Hogar del Ninos has not been attending and we are working with his mother to try to get him back in. Transportation is always an issue. Speaking of transportation, thanks to First Baptist in Moorestown for donating money raised at a Camden Riversharks game to Batey Brador so all their kids will have bus fare to attend school! Please attend our fundraiser on November 11th if you can! Or make a donation.
