Martha and Elijah: Back Home Again

Twin Siblings From Orphanage Reunited With Parents.

In June of 2013, twin siblings Martha and Elijah, were brought into the Babies’ Home to be put under the care of Wando International.  The brother and sister duo were just about 2 years old at the time and their parents were not in a position to properly care for them.  Neither of the parents were working and the living conditions for the family were grim.  Unfortunately things got so bad that the children had to be separated from their parents and brought into the orphanage.

Well that’s not the case anymore!

At the beginning of this year, Martha and Elijah were able to be resettled back with their parents!

Both the mother and father are now working again and have become stable.  They were absolutely driven to get back on their feet so they could bring their son and daughter back home.

As routine check up with resettlements, our case managers went and visited their home to verify that all is still well in the home.  They spoke with the children’s father and he was able to share freely and openly on how they were all doing.  The kids are being provided 3 meals per day which is a balance of posho, greens, beans, and fish (a traditional Ugandan meal). He said that health-wise the children are good and have not had any serious concerns.  The kids did have simple cases of malaria and cough but they were able to get treatment for them.  Martha and Elijah have not missed any school days either.  The parents are committed to getting them up and ready each morning to be on time.  The family is still living in a humble home, but all their needs are being met…physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Our case workers’ are pleased to confirm that Martha and Elijah have settled back nicely with their parents.  They are back to being a solid family once again.  In the time that Elijah and Martha were under our care we were blessed with so many fun memories.  But we are even more happy to know that they are safe again and with their loving parents.
