They transported her to a hospital in Soroti and she was finally released today. Her hospital bill was 10,000 shillings and now it costs 3,000 shillings each day that she has to get her dressings changed. This equates to $4.50 for her 3 day hospital stay and $1.20 per day for dressing changes. This is a HUGE stresser for this family.
I neglected to tell you that Rose's sister is already caring for 20 orphans in her home (along with 2 other aunties). Her heart is so heavy with her responsibilities. Now, she is considering needing to take the 25 children into HER home! She said that she would rather have them all die of starvation together (knowing she'll never be able to feed all 45 children) in a home that is loving and is their ancestral/tribal home then have them neglected in an orphanage.
Please pray, Arthur is looking into how many children Rapha can take in. They don't know if they have enough space or money to take all of the children in right now. We will be discussing this on Tuesday. We told Rose that we will help her find a place that will take care of them. Pray for wisdom and discernment for us to find a place of safety for these children.
After telling Rose that we will help her, she hugged me tightly and quietly commented,
"My tears have been compensated tonight".
