When Haoua first arrived at the CAFOD-funded St Augustine’s Health Centre in Niger, her 17-month-old daughter Hassana was severely malnourished and in danger of dying. The team of expert nurses assessed Hassana and put her on a programme of food supplements, vitamins and antibiotics. In three weeks she was healthy again.
“If I hadn’t come here, I don’t know what would have happened to my baby…luckily, we did come here.” Haoua, Niger
We often sing and hear about shepherds, wise men and angels but I sometimes forget about the long journey Joseph and heavily pregnant Mary made into Bethlehem. The journey was made easier by a donkey that Mary rode on and Little Donkey reminds us how the donkey carried her safely on the dusty road.
2,000 years later, donkeys are still proving to be trustworthy animals but now the precious load is water.
Nativity crib scenes are a traditional way to celebrate the birth of Jesus, and this brightly coloured nativity triptych really captures the joy and hope that Christmas brings.
