An update on Fabrice whom we have been supporting since we met him a few years ago – a toddler who could only get around on all fours. He is walking, running, and going to school. Once COVID hit he was quarantined at home, rather than being in school and spending time with the Benebikira Sisters. When COVID eased, temporarily, he emerged and was unkempt, hungry, and had regressed in his developmental milestones. . He had lost weight – the Sisters were sending food, but it was uncertain how much he was getting. He and his young brother are now staying with the Sisters and getting the care they need. The young woman pictured with Fabrice is his caretaker.
