The best medicine

As in all families, the good health of each member cannot be taken for granted. Our SOS mothers are luckier than some mothers who live in the community surrounding the village: there is always someone at hand to help out with the children - other SOS mothers, aunties (family helpers) and the older children in the village are always willing to help in an emergency.
