Maria’s Christening

Fr Bruno and Maria at her Christening

Those of you who attended one of the TOUCO appreciation dinners last year will remember Fr. Bruno’s story about Miriam, the girl who was brought to TOUCO as toddler on death’s door, in desperation by her grandfather who had heard of the UPENDO orphan village from a friend.  She has made a miraculous recovery to full health after several years of love, attention, good nutrition and appropriate medical care. Below is a photo of her Christening last year as Maria. It was a beautiful celebration of Life that turned into a community wide celebration event.
