The harder moment

Tears of sorrow we know will someday be replaced by tears of joy. Last Thursday we met a family who had a 5 year old daughter that was suffering from malnutrition, not sure why she was malnourished, had been suffering from some illness that the Doctors could not place. Charity Anywhere was here and helped get the family the vitamins the Doctor had prescribed, plus Incaparina (a protein drink) and powdered milk to help the little one. We went to check on how the family was doing this afternoon only to find out the little girl died Sunday morning. Our heart breaks for this sweet family and the mother's arms who are empty. Our hearts break for all of the other mothers here whose children are sick or die and they do not know how to help them.  This is one of the harder parts of our mission.
