As Mama Vicki recovers from surgery today, we've just lost a toddler again in Sierra Leone, ROO's best friend, playmate and neighbour.

Borbor as he is called met his untimely death after a high fever attack  last night. I guess another case of malaria. He dropped the young body before reaching the hospital.

Today ROO returns home from school without a friend.
My heart aches... Please keep Borbor's mother in your prayers.

Thank you all.
