You may remember me telling you about the lovely blankets being sent out to my sister Ettie who works with UNICEF in Hargeisa, Somalia. Well She sent me these photos of babies with their blankets in the paediatric unit of Burao Hospital. Absolutely gorgeous.
If she wasn’t so busy saving the world she’d make a brilliant photographer!
Seeing these beautiful babies makes me feel that it’s so important for me to do something. I don’t know what yet though. Ettie was telling me that she saw babies dying in this hospital this week from simple things like diarrhea. That situation would be unthinkable here.
I’m thinking of setting up a ‘sister school’ between this hospital and the art classes that I do on Saturday mornings. We could have ‘art’ exhibitions and fund raising functions. It’s just an idea at the moment but I’ll let you know when I’ve something concrete sorted out and I’d love to hear any ideas you have!
