It is with deepest sorrow that we provide this update on the baby Abu-Bakarr, who we wrote about yesterday. Abu was brought to Mercy Hospital after being referred by Mercy's Outreach team. Severely malnourished, Abu struggled to breathe, and the Mercy staff worked diligently through the day yesterday to try to save his life. They were unsuccessful and Abu passed away at 8:40 last night.
There are many malnourished children just like Abu in the villages that are served by Mercy's Nutrition program. Mercy strives to get to each village on a monthly basis to provide these children with the nutritional supplementation they need to survive. Your support of the Mercy nutrition program is so critical to saving lives.
Thank you again for standing with us in prayer. Your prayers for Abu were a source of solace to him and his family, who are comforted in the knowledge that he is in heaven now and no longer suffering.
