We are having a case where a mother has been raped in the bush and after medical check up doctors warned of not breast-feeding the baby for a period of six months. People have sent some money and food for the rape victim but forgot to arrange something for the baby who does not know anything other than his mother's breast milk. I, together with a team of three are now trying to reach the mother and discuss with her ways and means this baby could be breast-fed with the milk of another lactating mother. Of-course we are ready to pay the new breast-feeder if she asks so. Far more serious than this is that the culprit has not yet been brought to justice!

He is a few weeks old
His mother was raped
She could be infected
Possibly with an HIV
Breastfeeding stopped
Story made people sad
It had grabbed attention
Enjoyed media coverage
Focusing on the mother only
Forgetting the baby’s quandary

Abdi Noor Don't they have canned infant formula or powder that replaces the mothers milk when they can't produce milk? I will pray that someone tries to quickly find the replacement. My prayers continue to be with you and yours, and bless you for helping her!

The mother is the direct victim of repe and the baby is the indirect victim. That is why people are not considering this baby's plight.

Abdinoor, you are really a great man. Your attempt to safe this baby shows how much concern you harbor for your poeple and your country. You never know, this baby may safe the whole nation or even humanity in the future. Saving one life is equal to saving every life and vise versa.

Please keep up the great task of donating your time, money, energy, wisdom, poetry and all types of resources to our people. It will sure bear fruits of peace and love.

Thank you brother Abdinoor.

If the mother can substitute some formula and find a donor of breast milk for her child also, this could be a possible solution to the problem, but in six months time, the mother will not have enough milk if any at all to feed her child so she will need some help and support. Is there a way for you to reach UNICEF? I believe that they may be able to help out financially and also with needed tests of the donor mother. This is very sad, Abdi-Noor, for anyone to exercise force upon another person is pitiful but rape goes many layers deeper and will alter the woman's life forever.
Take care,
