Dear ~Enable the Children~ supporters,
Happy New Year from us all! We hope you are well and have started 2013 in good health and happiness. Just a quick little update……
News from the Boord Family
For those of you who have not heard yet, Rob and I welcomed Isaac Astley Henry Boord into the world on 14th December, only 12 days late – as Rob has said he has my African sense of timing!! He weighed 8lbs 9oz then and has gained even more since as he’s a hungry little chap! Despite a 36 hour labour I’m doing well and am so happy to be a Mummy! We are loving settling down as a little family and are so thankful for this special gift from God.
News from Sierra Leone
Abu and Ambrose have kept the fort going in Freetown seeing many families and encouraging the disabled children’s development. They are pleased to be joined by two new volunteers – Anna, a British Physiotherapist and Jaimie, an American Children’s Nurse who will also be working for us in a Programme Support kind of way with our admin. They have both already arrived and we look forward to hearing more from them as they settle in.
There is an Executive Board meeting to be held this coming Saturday 26th January – these are always interesting meetings and there’s sure to be news of progress and plans coming soon.
Kind regards and thanks to you all, we’ll be in touch again soon with more up-to-date news from Sierra Leone.
Love Vez, Rob and baby Isaac
And the Sierra Leone ~Enable the Children~ team
