Nursery Unit  June   15, 2016 It was a wonderful morning for the orphans as they exited the stockades in a jovial mood and made their way to the park. Ngilai, Ndotto and Lasayen played a game of hide and seek while they walked. Oltaiyoni and Sokotei played pushing and mounting games while Roi, Boromoko, and Kauro played strength testing games.

Oltaiyoni has become very attached to Ambo who is now her favourite baby with Jotto being Mbegu’s favourite. When the older groups are together with the babies Mbegu will always be seen with Jotto and Oltaiyoni with Ambo mothering the two youngsters as if they were their own “babies”, coming running as soon as a cry was heard from either one to make sure that everything is ok.

Today Ambo cried out for no particular reason which brought Oltayoni running as soon as she heard him. She pulled him under her neck and comforted him. Once he had calmed down he started sucking on Oltaiyoni’s ears while touching her all over with his trunk.
