photos - mich - part 4

The boy with the white undershirt is Mich's brother Luckenson.

His legs are deformed too because of rickets, which is caused by a nutritional deficiency in the diet. He will be needing surgery to correct the bowing in his femur (Paulna's leg used to be malformed too and is now straight after receiving surgery). Pray an orthopedic surgeon can be found to help him. Mich is now 14 years's old. His malnutrition stunted his growth.

I call this the "steeplechase" walk. Everyone followed us wherever we went. Even over obstacles! It was fun.

The children enjoyed meeting Jantje.

Some of the children accompanied Mich back to the truck.
