Medical history


Their story

Jean and Jeanne’s mom passed away during childbirth due to severe anemia. The dad’s sister and a friend decided to take care of the children. The twin’s dad is currently unemployed. He lives with his mother, who is unable to look after the children.

The twins were born underweight and have both lost weight since birth. When we first met them, at 9 days of life, Jean weighed 1.9 kg and Jeanne 2.03 kg.

We are now supporting them through the donation of artificial milk and regular check-ups at the Graines d’Espoir center.
