Since the sun was so hot, I carried them to a shade. They finally woke up after a long struggle. We bought them something to eat . The older one told us they has not eaten even yesterday. With the assistance of the area chief, we had the children checked out and thank God they were fine apart from some cold.
We later traced the mother who had gone to look for some kibarua. She confirmed indeed the children had not eaten since yesterday and had left hoping she would get something to feed them.
We also learnt that the father had been jailed few months ago after a sheep he was herding got lost in his custody. We are still in consultation with are children officer to advise us. We were also able to get the children some food and we are planning on taking some clothes tomorrow.” read the message from one Catherine
