Medical history


Her story

Eya’s mom passed away during the delivery at the hospital. Eya and her older sister were taken in by their grandmother and uncle. The grandmother is a farmer and has eleven other children.

After the birth, the grandmother had to seek help from the community so that Eya could survive. A woman agreed to breastfeed her for the first few days. When we first met her, at five days old, Eya weighed 2.19 kg. We have supported the family through the donation of artificial milk and medical care at the center.
