Constante – Orphaned by mother due to accident

constanteThis is Constante. He just turned two years old and this was his last visit to receive his milk powder and bouille. He is graduating from our Infants in Distress program. He became orphaned at the age of 11 months after a large rain. He was sleeping with his mother and two siblings when the roof caved in on them. Constante’s mother was killed immediately from the wood and other material falling on her chest. It took them close to an hour to dig the children out from under the rubble. When they found Constante, dirt filled his mouth and nose. He is now being taken care of by his grandmother who lived in the same compound and was one of the people who dug him out. Constante will continue to be monitored by Infants in Distress on a quarterly basis.
