It takes a community

Lisa has written several blogs about the “Yes Man”. When he arrived with his severely malnourished child, he was scared and nervous. Every other mother in the room needed to help him with the most basic care.

Today, a one-month old infant arrived with meningitis, seizures and dehydration. The dehydration was so severe we could not find an adequate vein to give fluids, so we were forced to put a feeding tube into the child’s nose.

As I was showing the mother how to use the tube, “Yes Man” approached me and wanted to lead the teaching session. He then confidently showed her how to mix the milk and then place it in the tube.

It is so nice to watch strangers continually helping each other out.
