A Child Once Again

Before arriving at Rafiki, Phiona was her brother Emmanuel's (Emma) caregiver. At the age of six, she was basically his mother. She would carry him around on her back. She struggled to find food to sustain them. You can see from the pictures how small Emma's legs were. Now, Phiona is able to be a child again. She still looks after her brother, but in a much different way. And, as you can see, they are much healthier and happier as well.
