Baby Mahmadou

Our guard’s wife just had a baby! Today we went to see the baby and meet his wife and kids for the first time. The baby’s name is Mahmadou and he is 2 weeks old today. It was nice to see this side of Abdou. He was beaming with pride while introducing us to his family. With the arrival of Mahmadou they now have 4 kids.

They live in a neighborhood not far from the hospital, but kind of on the outskirts of town. All 6 of them live in a small rented room with a courtyard attached that serves as the kitchen. They don’t have running water or electricity, but it’s clear that they have a very warm and loving home. We had a nice time hanging out and getting to know them a little bit.
