His story

Kokou Israël lives with his parents. His mom used to be a retailer, but she is currently unemployed. His dad is employed in a factory that manufactures organic plastic bags. In his first days of life, Kokou was admitted to the hospital of Tsévié for a neonatal infection. Since birth, his mom has not produced enough milk to breastfeed him, and he is now in a situation of severe undernutrition. When we first met him, at 9 months, he weighed 4.6 kg.
