Ending the wait: Luyando’s story

luyando mom pic_0747

Brenda tried so hard to find healing for her daughter Luyando, who was suffering from hydrocephalus. After trying a traditional healer, she tried multiple trips to a clinic, then admission to a hospital, then admission to another hospital, where they waited for one month to be seen.

Hope for healing felt more and more unrealistic with each passing day.

See Luyando’s full story and find out how she’s doing today in our photo essay, “Ending the Wait.”
