Damaris Mbinya believes there is nothing under the sun that a mother cannot do for her child. She describes motherhood as “giving your all until you have nothing more to give.”
Motherhood has tossed her, pushed her to go on her knees in prayer, sent her to bed in silent weeps and she is now donating a part of her liver to her one-year-old son.
Little Emmanuel Gathogo was born with a liver condition that affects bile production. From the day he was handed to Mbinya, a three-kilogram baby boy, she sensed something was not right.
“His eyes were yellow. He cried a lot. I was always up. He would scratch his body all the time,” she says.
