Soweto Hospital

Not much new here. We've just been arranging a truck to take a load of blankets and hygiene kits into Lesotho for the many orphans that live in the mountainous regions. It gets pretty cold there.Today, I'm going to call the Salvation Army to see how we can help their organization help a huge hospital in Soweto. It is a government hospital and is the biggest in the world. In a week's time they have 500 babies born and there isn't enough hospital gowns for the mothers to wear..they just wrap up in their sheets and many have nothing to bring their babies home in. Yesterday, Sisters Parmley and Stringham visited the hospital and delivered 72 newborn kits...they were used up in short time.We sure have it nice compared to many in the world.

Hi, just a note from the blog master, I went to my bosses RS luncheon today (because my job is the best in the world) and got to help stuff animals and make books for the kids in the orphanages in South Africa. Pretty cool to think that maybe some of the stuff we worked on today will end up with my parents over there.

Incredible what is going on out there in the world and most of us are so cozy comfortable in the USA that we are clueless. Now I have a better feel for what the hygiene kits and newborn kits are all about. Your are an angel of mercy, Sister Sis.

It is good to know where they end up.

So who's the real blogger here? Parents or daughter? Either way I love to hear about South Africa! Keep up the great work!

Man I have more baby clothes than my kids can wear. Half the baby clothes are still new bc they only wear them once and grow out of them. Just tell me where to send them and I'll ship some newborn onesies and clothes straightaway.
