A Devastating Loss at Touch the Slum


I am devastated to tell you that we lost baby Alpha today. His 16-year-old mom, Sylvia, is inconsolable.

Alpha suddenly spiked a high fever this morning with convulsions. Sherry got the fever down and she and Mama Santa rushed him to the hospital. The hospital REFUSED TO TREAT HIM because the pediatrician wasn’t there. By the time they got to the second hospital, he had no pulse.

Our community is in shock and mourning. They are holding a vigil all night tonight.

Please pray for Sylvia and everyone in our very close-knit Touch the Slum family.

Thank you.
