We have just received word that little Roo, the 2 year old son of James Mansaray (our director of Nazareth House operations in Freetown, Sierra Leone) has taken ill. He was fine this afternoon and suddenly spiked a exceptionally high fever, chills and is unresponsive.
James and Kadijah took him to several area clinics and hospitals tonight only to be ignored. It is night and they must come back in the morning. They have taken Roo back to St. Laurence House. They have given him Children's Tylenol and I have instructed them to bathe him in cool water to bring the fever down. They will try a hospital again in the morning.
Please keep him and the family in your prayers as they face this difficult time.
