Nursery Unit  October   12, 2017 This morning as the orphans were walking out to the forest, we watched as Musiara and Sattao enjoyed a lovely pushing game, trying to test and challenge each other. These two playful little boys were playing a very serious game that drew Malkia’s attention as she loves to mother Musiara. She walked in between the two little boys but Musiara walked around her to continue tackling Sattao. Malkia then settled on pushing Sattao away from Musiara which really brought about the end of their game, and he walked off to join Luggard, Maisha and Emoli who were browsing nearby. These two little boys hang together and play together just like Ndotto and Lasayen did when they were little!

Today for the 9am bottle feed Sapalan came out of his stockade to join the other orphans for the first time. He was evidently nervous though as his first reaction to seeing Kauro, Rapa, Mbegu, Ndotto and Pare was quite rough as he pushed them and tried to assert his dominance as a big boy too. As time went on though during the course of the day, he calmed down a lot and was more composed as he realised all the other orphans around him were friendly and were not going to do him any harm, but welcome him lovingly into their herd.

Sweet little Musiara
