Very briefly, I’m happy to report that some convoluted discussions led to Mary being put back onto her TB medication. Details are murky but 4 days later she had gained 100g, and 1 week on from that she had gained 300g. With bated breath we are hopeful these are signs of a cure in the making.
Meanwhile, some weeks ago a strong gale blew havoc through Mary’s community. Particularly concerning was the home of an intellectually disabled woman which lost one of its three walls, and its roof. The community took her in but with everyone living in little shanty huts, noone could really afford the room, so we contributed the materials and labor to replace her home. I’ve labelled the photos for those who, like me, might not recognise which is which but my colleague has assured me that the replacement is much stronger.
