BABA MAGGIE - A TRIBUTE
Maggie’s mother survived childbirth six times, to six baby girls, but died after the seventh – Maggie. Deeply impoverished, Maggie’s father, Baba Maggie, was watching Maggie die before his eyes. One day he handed her to the staff at the Baby Home to ensure her survival. At the time the Baby Home was short a gardener, a position that Baba Maggie was all too eager to take on. As staff he was able to see sweet Maggie daily and watch her grow. After two years she went home to her family. Baba Maggie died a year ago this January. His job with Forever Angels fed his family well and enabled his girls to go to school. Unwilling to let the family fall through the cracks after his death Forever Angels has employed his eldest daughters, Flora and Mecky, who now watch over their younger sisters with courage and commitment.
