Nursery Unit  October   16, 2017 The poor new baby woke up this morning looking a bit better than yesterday and even took some milk from a bucket and ate some greens, which she had not managed to do previously. In the morning she was greeted warmly by Maramoja, Mbegu and Godoma where the trio enjoyed entwining trunks with the new arrival, always a sign of compassion and affection. When the three left to go out into the forest the poor girl rumbled after them as she wanted to join them, but it is still too early and she is still very weak.

At 9am the orphans had their bottle feed near the stockades so that after, they could escort Sagala out to the forest for the first time. We watched as Kuishi, Godoma and Malkia walked into Sagala’s stockade to escort her out as when we first opened the gate she looked very shy and unwilling to come out, but these three convinced her to follow them. On the way out to the forest she was completely sandwiched between all the orphans. Though boys like Ngilai and Pare tried to chase her and climb on her, their plans were thwarted by the keepers. Sagala looked happy and very relaxed in the company of the others.
