Pedros has happily bounced out of here, but we have another wee one. Little Alisa arrived yesterday with her mum Navy (pronounced Na-wee; 'v' becomes 'w' in Khmer).
Alisa and Navy are our first patients referred by an outside agency. Wilma, an Aussie working with Hagar, contacted us about mum and daughter. Navy is blind, very poor and without family. Alisa at eight months old is badly malnourished, largely because she has a sucking reflex problem.

Susie has been shopping - three sets of baby clothes, toys, nappies and whatever else was thrust into her hands by happy market vendors.
