Medical history


Her story

We met Akouvi at her home during a vaccination visit. She was abandoned by her mother just a few months after birth, and as a result no longer had access to breast milk. Akouvi suffered from extreme undernutrition. When we first met her, at 10 months old, she weighed 2.9 kg. Her dad, grandmother and aunt are now looking after her. However, the dad was unemployed and the family had very limited income. We supported them through medical care at our center and the donation of artificial milk. We also financed a sewing business for Akouvi’s aunt, so that she would be able to provide for her.
