Many babies come to the orphanage in desperate need of medical care. Vivian's Hope was established through Nightlight to provide financially for those needs. One such child, Vivian, came to the orphanage after
being abandoned and neglected by her mother. Severely underweight, at 19 months
old, she only weighed 13 lbs. She also had syphilis and anemia. This past
February, we learned that she had Malaria, and shortly after, bacterial
meningitis. Vivian died in April because her little body did not have the
strength to fight the bacteria that invaded her body. It is in honor of Vivian's life that the supporters of Vivian's Hope strive to provide medical care for orphaned babies.
