Shadowing Professor Borgstein for his ward rounds! When Kondwane was two, he ingested caustic cleaner which damaged his esophagus. For the next two years, he was fed through a tube until Dr. Borgstein operated and reconstructed his esophagus. Here he is eating food orally for the first in two years. #ThankyouDrBorgstein#hero#children#care
Visiting young patients in the ward this time last year. The current paediatric wards have high demand and are overcrowded so children and parents have to share space on the floor. The Mercy James Centre will include a 50 bed recovery ward so that every child and has a comfortable space to get better. #fbf#mercyjamescentre#children#love#health
“I do not want art for a few any more than education for a few, or freedom for a few.” – William Morris. ️ Students at @DetroitAchievement enjoying art class. Double tap if you agree that every child should have art education. #friendsofRM#instaart#artforall
Look who it is! Luka in the office getting his regular health check-up with Dr. Borgstein! He’s doing well, studying for his exams next week, and excited to start summer vacation! #IAmBecauseWeAre#RMfamily

Today we're shouting out another #FriendsofRM! @jphro, J/P Haitian Relief Organization, was formed after Haiti’s 2010 earthquake to support many of the people who were left homeless in the country’s capital of Port-au-Prince. Madonna's #RayOfLightFoundation provided funding for J/P HRO to build l'Ecole de l'Espoir, (the School of Hope) a primary school providing quality education for children of families in the Petionville Club camp, which now serves 250 students!
This week we're highlighting some of Friends of #RaisingMalawi! Aka organizations we love that also receive support from the incredible @Madonna. Today's friend org is called Shining Hope for Communities, or @SHOFCO. SHOFCO combats gender inequality in Nairobi by linking tuition free schools for girls to holistic social services for all. Their work extends beyond families of students, it aids entire communities with things like clean water, quality health care, and economic empowerment opportunities. Click the link in our bio to learn more & contribute to their cause! #greatergood#charity#buildingcommunities#raisingmalawi#FriendsofRM
