BCI Program Director Cares for Wounded Child

It is always an exciting day when we receive photo updates of our children. We found a treasure in our most recent update – a video taken several months ago that warmed our hearts. Our Ethiopian Program Director was filmed providing medical care to Fitsum Girma. Until this summer, when she was able to have surgery to treat her Osteomyelitis, Fitsum required frequent medical care. Her wound had to be carefully cleaned and bandaged daily for many months.

We have a number of social workers and staff who could have provided this care. We found it touching that our Program Director took on this responsibility himself. In the midst of all of the tasks he has to complete to keep the program running for more than 200 children, he carved out time in his day to personally treat Fitsum. We feel blessed to have a Program Director who cares so much for each and every child in our program.

Take a look!
