Listen to mama!

We love telling you about our plucky little cuties on the Baby Unit.  But it’s not often that we hear from their mums.

We got the chance to chat with some of these lovely ladies, and here’s what they said: “We don’t know what would have happened to our babies if the Baby Unit at Kitovu didn’t exist.  For sure, there have been some babies brought to this Unit that we thought couldn’t possibly make it, but fortunately many go home after their stay in good health!

We want to say a sincere thank you to the nurses at the Baby Unit who have taken good care of our children without complaining at any point.  They keep on checking on the babies 24 hours a day.  Yes, we know that they are paid to do this work, but some nurses are paid for work and yet they dodge their duties – that is not the case here.  Instead they are loving carers to us. A big thank you to our nurses and may God bless you so much.”

And just so you know, we didn’t interview this in the nurses’ presence – this stuff was straight from the heart.  Good work nurses, and thank you for your feedback, mummies!  And thank you to all of you who help us to keep the Baby Unit staffed and running!
