Here is the video explaining the story of Andibo… The 1 & 1/2 year old Mbuti Pygmy INFANT who died because the HOSPITAL neglected, and rejected him from receiving treatment. Help me be a voice of these people who’s stories go untold… Become a voice WITH me! Help me share it!

Andibo was called a “Pygmy Animal” who they didn’t want to WASTE medicine on! Then him and his starving and desperately sick mother were told they couldn’t be on a hospital bed because they were too dirty… A chicken, eggs, and firewood wasn’t good enough payment from the human slaves who don’t get paid in money… So they were rejected and Andibo died.

I held this BEAUTIFUL little boy’s hand as blood was still running out of his ears… I covered his face and body with the sheet after he died… I dug the grave, bought the coffin…

By the way… It cost TEN TIMES more to bury Andibo than his prescription cost… $50 for the COFFIN… $5 for the script that would have SAVED his life!!!

Here is the video of me explaining it… As I type this tears are streaming down my face… I guess I’m still processing this kind of inhumanity & extreme discrimination…

I’m sitting in the parking lot and I am 25 minutes late to my meeting with my creative team that is going to help plan a website. Trying to gather myself if I’m being honest…

These guys are TOP of the line! They specifically want to help nonprofits, orgs, and foundations be able to have the best websites available… I’m mentally drained, I have a migraine, my heart is HEAVY and my stomach is churning.

I know on my last thread people said they wanted to help… Thank God! I don’t know what I’d do by myself… I’d still try but I KNOW this situation, the mistreatment, and the unheard catastrophe of forgotten people is SO much bigger than me… Any, any, ANY assistance would be more appreciated than I can explain in words…

Maybe this can be the thread people help me gather idea’s… Thoughts… Foundation brainstorming… Media collection? I have pics on my Facebook. I have about 3,500 pics and videos total… From dancing with Pygmies, to sleeping in their huts… To them killing a black mamba one hut away… To an old man (my great uncle) eating TWO minnows for his ENTIRE day meal and he went hungry the day before… To bathing in the rivers… To crossing the Ituri river in a dug out tree canoe… To some absolutely disgusting stories of inhumanity that would have been hard for me to believe… Till I lived it.
