Nako's daddy, David, was at our house before seven this morning to let us know that she and the baby were about to leave in a motor canoe for the bigger clinic in Yandina. The baby had begun running a fever and needed a better equipped clinic. So, I raced down the hill to find a crowd of women and children surrounding Nako who was holding a tiny bundle. All I could do as they stepped in the canoe was say a quick prayer over baby and mama as I slipped a little petrol money into my friend's hand.
