As Robert was walking home from school on Thursday he noticed some people standing near the neighborhood dump site. As his curiosity grew him closer to figure out what was going on he came to the realization that once again a new born baby has been dumped. The baby was dead and it seemed to have some trauma to the head leading him to believe that possibly someone struck the baby before dumping.
I know when this similiar thing was happening back home, the hospitals started a no questions asked policy to receive unwanted babies. I have been thinking and praying about this problem here in Masaka. I know that Uganda Child Care has recently opened a babies home here and would take in these unwanted babies to give them life and a future. In fact they have received babies under these same circumstances.
I have an idea that we will speak with some of the local officials about putting up signs near these dump sites for people to take their babies to a receiving area instead of leaving them for dead. I will speak with UCC about a program such as this and see if we can organize a plan of action.
We will need to organize a fund raiser to produce and erect the signs throughout the city. Keep this in your prayers so the Lord can guide us on how He wants us to solve this problem.
Let me know if you have any other suggestions or ideas!
