Her story

Dorcas lives with her mother, sister and grandmother. Her father has been away since she was born, and the grandmother is taking care of the family’s meals with very limited means. One of Dorcas’ sisters was undernourished. Unfortunately, she was not treated in time and passed away. When we first met Dorcas, at 6 months old, she weighed 6 kg and was 56 cm tall. She had chronic diarrhea and refused to nurse. As a result, she was at risk of malnutrition. We provided her with artificial milk to compensate for her nutritional deficiency. We continue to do regular check-ups and provide medical care whenever Dorcas needs it.
