Musa Kayumba


< Back to Children

Musa Kayumba  was born January 10, 2010.

Musa's mother died sometime after giving birth to him and there was no one capable of caring for him in the village where he lived. When we went to the village to get Musa, they were in the midst of burial ceremonies for his mother. Musa was in the hospital at that time, sick with malaria. Although Musa was not premature, he was a very tiny baby. We discovered that for the first week of Musa’s life, his aunties in the village had given him mostly water to drink and very little milk. Therefore, he lost whatever weight he had when he was born.  He has a hearty appetite and has gained a lot of weight and is happy, strong boy!
