The Story

We are a centre in Arusha, Tanzania called Watoto Kicheko, we care for orphaned, abandoned & vulnerable babies and young children, Careen has been in the hospital since February 19th when she weighed only 780 grams, she has fought so hard and is doing well now. Rose, an orphan, has been in the hospital since March 23rd, the Dr's are trying to find out what is wrong with her but with limited resources it is hard. When using the private hospitals, the bill can be high and it is certainly very high for these two, please help us by donating to cover their hospital bills.

Careen was born on February 5th 2015, we met her on February 19th when she was 780g and we transferred her from the government hospital to a private one, if she had stayed in the government hospital she would have died, we were concerned even that she wouldn't make the journey!! She now weighs over 2kg and is so close to discharge, she is the smallest baby ever to have left the NICU in ALMC hospital. Her care however has not come cheap, 120,000tzs/ £41/ $62 per night, that is for the bed, as I said she has been there since February 19th, you can't put a price on a life, she is alive because of the private hospital care, please consider donating to help us to pay this large sum of money, every amount helps, big or small!!
