Start of care
Maxim lives with his mom, who works as a seamstress. He has two older sisters. Since he was born, his mom did not produce enough milk to feed him. She also could not afford to buy artificial milk. When we met Maxim, at more than three months old, he weighed only 2.14 kg, indicating severe undernutrition. We are now supporting him through regular check-ups at the center and the donation of artificial milk.
