On May 10, 2021, MCF welcomed to the family an 18-month-old baby girl. Baby Leila was under-weight, suffering from severe malnutrition and delayed milestones at the time of her rescue. We immediately enrolled her in a referral hospital in the nutrition, pediatric outpatient, and physiotherapy clinic.
Due to her ill health, she is frequently sickly, on constant medication and has been hospitalized two times since her rescue. She was admitted to the hospital on February 23, 2022 and was diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis on gene x-pert (TB Test); thus, she is now under TB treatment.
Please pray for Baby Leila, who needs God’s intervention in her health and life. She has experienced abuse and neglect from birth, born to a teenage mother. Kindly let us join our hands in praying for other MCF children who struggle with their health due to their history of lack of food, proper nutrition, poverty, and rejection.
Isaiah 53:4-5 TLB
Yet it was our grief He bore, our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, for his own sins! But he was wounded and bruised for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace; he was lashed—and we were healed!
