Welcome Back Akello Joyce!
Joyce returned to work at the 31 Bits compound last week after a 3 month complication with the sickness of her newborn son. In early July she gave birth to her first child, Stuart, who seemed to be healthy and well. However, a couple weeks into his life, he developed sores in his mouth that spread throughout his body causing him to be very weak. For the past 3 months, Joyce has been unable to leave her son at home making her unable to earn money causing the family to rely only on her husband’s income from farming. The medicine was very costly as treatments had to be given three times a day. Thankfully, Stuart is now finally strong enough to be away from home and accompanying his mother to work allowing her to contribute to the family’s needs. We are very glad to have Joyce back with us and she is excited to be earning money again and spending time with her friends.
