Preventing the risk of undernutrition
Date of birth

Start of care
Koffi Israël was born with a small weight of 2.8 kg. The delivery was done at home due to lack of financial means. When we first met him, he was at risk of being undernourished, as his mom did not produce enough milk. His dad is a teacher, but due to Covid, his school had closed, and he was then unemployed. We supported the family through a donation of artificial milk every week, and our midwife regularly met with Koffi’s mom to help her stimulate her lactation.
