We would like to ask our prayer warrior friends to please pray for baby Abu Bakkar, an 8 month old baby who is only 7.7 lbs. His mother died during childbirth and his father has been unable to properly care for him because he is unemployed.
Mercy identiifed him on an outreach last week and begged the family to come to the hospital, which they did yesterday. Abu is doing a little better today, but he is not out of the woods yet. The staff are doing everything in our power to save his life. The child is severely malnourished and they are trying to feed him. They are testing him for other things, but for now the malnutrition is the only apparent issue. There is no dependable prognosis for now. It's not encouraging that his weight is like a newborn, but there is still some room for hope. It is going to be very touch and go for a while. His breathing seems normal today, yesterday it was not.
Please keep him, his family, and the staff in your prayers.
