Down Syndrome

His story

Alexis was born with Down Syndrome and suffers from severe undernutrition (4.4 kg at 9 months). When we first met him, his mom was not aware of his diagnosis. We took them to a pediatrician in Lomé who announced the diagnosis and presented the pathology and its repercussions on Alexis’ weight. We also financed a cardiac ultrasound because he showed all signs of a congenital cardiopathy. In fact, there is an abnormal communication between the two ventricles of his heart. According to the cardiologist who examined him, this will fortunately have no serious repercussions on his health. We are now giving them artificial milk and providing advice concerning his diet. We are also financing all the consultations and medical exams which are necessary for Alexis’ medical care.
