His story

Manassé lives with his mom. His dad left after he was born. Manassé has a 5-year-old brother, who was born when his mom was still in school. When we first met them, his mom helped a woman sell rice for 700 CFA francs (one euro) a day.

Since Manassé was born, his mom did not produce enough milk to feed him. The grandmother financed the first boxes of artificial milk, but she eventually ran out of money. Manassé was then fed with porridge. Today, we support them through the donation of artificial milk and medical care at our center.
