We hadn't seen Arasidatou in quite awhile but came to us the other week through MSF (Doctors Without Borders) who work in town. See here and here for her story.
I didn't even recognize her when she came. No one did really. I kept thinking her eyes looked familiar but was shocked when I realized it was her. She looked so good!
Arasidatou and Djeneba enjoying their candy canes together. They looked so cute together. Together they show the spectrum of response to long hospital stays. Arasidatou is fearful and cautious. Djeneba comes right up to us and sticks her hands in our pockets to find candy. :) Often she is lucky and finds something. (Djeneba has been coming twice a week lately for dressing changes).
