    Celebrating our good friend and amazing teammate

    Day 339

    A Fond Farewell

    Today is a day of celebration. As our good friend and amazing teammate Beatrice Nyalwal ends her time with Alight, we’re toasting the incredible impact she’s had on the people of Kalma Refugee Camp and our Alight Sudan Program.

    Beatrice is a true changemaker, and one of the many amazing things she’ll be remembered for is her warm meals project. Thanks to Beatrice, we provide a warm meal and hot drink to new mothers, benefiting their health, recovery, and overall well-being after the stress of birth.

    Beatrice’s program is a human centered answer to providing better service, and it’s a simple but effective way of showing new mothers that we care.

    “The meal can sometimes bring more joy than the baby, because when they come to us, they are very stunted and have nothing to eat. The meal can even relive pain because they are so happy,” one of the midwives told us.

    Because Beatrice has given so much, we wanted to be sure to give her a warm send off. What better way to do this than with a dance party and goat roast?!

    The music was bumping, the smiles were wide, and the food was delicious. Beatrice got everyone out on the dance floor, and we danced into the evening.

    We’ll be sad to see Beatrice go, but we are so thankful for the lessons she taught us. Beatrice, you truly are a changemaker. Thank you for sharing your gifts with Alight!
