When kids get sick at school you will hear two phrases over and over.
“I want to go home.” And “I want my Mom”.
Whether it’s a fever or an upset stomach they want to take the day off school and rest near their parent.
Daylight kids are no exception. For the students that live at home with their parent or relatives they stay home for a few days and rest. But for our children in the dormitory they can’t go home to their parents. Either their parents are not alive or they live far away in the desert.
With these children Angelina “Mama” Kimpur steps in to help them. She was helping Daylight student Dan feel better last week.
Dan is a Daylight student who stays in the Dormitory. Dan’s father passed away and his mother lives several days drive into the desert in the neighboring country of Uganda. When Dan got sick with a runny nose and a fever he was given the special Mama Kimpur treatment. For kids who live at the Dorm Angelina Kimpur takes extra time to bring them down to the Kimpur house and nurse them back to health.
Angelina believes that every sick child deserves to “Go Home with a Mom” and she is always ready and willing to be Mom for kids whose mom’s are not able to help nurse their child back to health.
