On July 27, a sweet lady in Endana was blessed to give birth to little Baby Mary Irene. The joy, however, was short lived as Mary Irene had a growth on her back which put her into Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi. The growth was removed but due to 4 months of accumulated bills, the hospital would not release the baby until the parents had paid in full. Thanks to the generosity of our 410 family, we were able to assist in paying the remainder of the bill so that Mary Irene could come home.

We rejoice with the family that Mary Irene now has the hope to live a “good life like other kids.”
