HIRWA OSEE AYABA PAULAIN

8 years old

Hirwa Osee is the delightful son of Marie Claire and Jean Bosco. He was born June 18, 2011 after Marie Claire had suffered 4 miscarriages. Osee was a healthy newborn until age 5 months. At that time he stopped making any sounds and could no longer control his body. He started to have convulsions. It is possible this could have resulted from cerebral malaria caused by a simple mosquito bite. Due to poverty the family was not able to get proper treatment or medication for Osee and as his condition deteriorated as he became severely malnourished. After meeting Love With Actions the family’s life really turned around. Osee became part of the LWA feeding program and his mother learned new and healthier ways to feed her son resulting in a weight gain of 13 pounds in the first 6 months. The family also received a goat and treated mosquito nets to help prevent future cases of malaria. Osee has now been seen by a neurologist and is on anti-seizure medication. His infectious smile continues to bring joy to his parents and all who meet him.

Marie Claire is a loving mother who has learned to communicate with her son in their own unique way. While he makes limited sounds, his mother know exactly what he needs. She also discovered that Osee loves to be around large groups of people, especially watching other children play. Marie Claire is so grateful for the community of LWA mothers who meet regularly at the Center for Family Empowerment in Bumbogo. She no longer feels so lonely. She has a very supportive husband and her mother sometimes helps by watching Osee when Marie Claire is working. The wonderful news for this family is that they are expecting a baby girl in March, 2019.
