PLANNING.

The first quarter 2018 outreach planning began in March 2018. We could not carry the project out as at the first proposed date which was March 10, 2018, because some of our team members were engaged with some personal activities. Thus, we decided to move the project date forward to April 05, which turned out to coincide with the Easter festive season.

A budget was drawn up for the outreach and upon approval by the CEO and approval of funds, the purchases were made and we were set to visit the orphanage.

Because of our intent to get an update about the baby girl, Mary also known as Adoration baby, who was diagnosed with a congenital mixed palsy, we invited the physiotherapist handling her case to join us during the outreach, but he was not available at our set date, so we agreed to invite a lady, Mrs. Uchechi by name, who has been involved with Mary’s case form the onset and has been a part of every decision about her case since then. Mrs. Uchechi, is a volunteer health worker and a lecturer, by profession.

EXECUTION

 On the set date for the outreach, the team visited the orphanage home to carry out the outreach.

We met with the Matron of the orphanage Sister Agnes, and we were later joined by Mrs. Uchechi.

We went around and saw all the kids. We discovered that since our last visit in December, the orphanage has received five more new born babies, a twin inclusive. The babies were doing great from our observation.

Mary, the baby girl with a congenital medical case, is fine she is growing bigger and heavier, however it appears that our decision to continue the Physiotherapy for three more months did not still produce any progress with her condition.

We had an interview session with the matron sister Agnes and Mrs. Uchechi. They informed us that since the efforts thus far have not yielded much result, they were now considering sending the baby to a handicapped people home. However they have not found one that offers the services they require. Some of the one they have found do not accept babies at Mary’s age. During the interview, Mrs. Uchechi informed us that they were not comfortable with the hygiene of the one place that would have been an option.

They said they were still looking for better options. Off the camera Mrs. Uchechi suggested that if it were possible, it would have been preferable if the baby could get medical attention in the USA, that she stands a better chance that way, than in Nigeria.

After the interviews, we took some pictures with the kids, bade them farewell and took our leave.

RECOMENDATIONS

  • We do not know how feasible it will be to get Mary to the USA, but that seems to be one of the few options left, while they continue to look for a better handicapped peoples home.
  • As we expand and grow, the Fourthman foundation may also need reach to more homes and be a blessing to other less privileged children in other homes.
