His story

Kodjo was 9 months old and weighed 5.75 kg when we first met him. We took him to the hospital for very severe undernutrition. A nasogastric tube was placed to feed him, as he did not have the strength to nurse. Kodjo’s mom has little means and has breastfed Kodjo while she had difficulties to feed herself. She lives alone in Tsévié, with Kodjo and three other children. She works in a small local restaurant where she washes dishes and pounds yams to prepare the local dish “Fufu”. We financed Kodjo’s hospitalization, and gave him artificial milk in supplement to his mom’s milk.
