Start of care
Akossiwavi, Akossiwa and Kossi live with their parents, both farmers. They have four brothers and sisters. The family had limited means, and their mom did not produce enough milk to breastfeed the three children. We supported them with regular donations of artificial milk. We continue to see them regularly and provide health care whenever they fall sick.

Akossiwavi came to the center as she was suffering from malaria, with a high fever of 39.6 °C. We gave her the necessary treatment and after two days she was already feeling better!

Following a home visit, we received Akossiwavi, who presented a fever of 39.2° and a rash. A test showed a high white blood cell count and mild anemia, signs of an infection. We treated her with an antipyretic, and she is already doing better!

The triplets visited us this week and all three had a cough, for which we gave them the proper treatment. They are doing great!

The burn on Akossiwa’s foot is healing very well. We continue the treatment and we have been financing her mom’s travels to the center.

Akossiwa, who suffered a third degree burn last week, is doing better. We performed a minor surgery on her wound, and added a cream and Tulle gras under the bandage. Fortunately, Akossiwa will not require hospitalization.

Akossiwa came to the center in an emergency with a severe burn on her foot. Given the worrying evolution of the burn, we decided to consult a pediatric surgeon, who confirmed that it is a 3rd degree burn. We will update you on her state very soon!
April 6th, 2021
Akossiwavi and Kossi, two of the triplets we are supporting, came to the center because they were showing symptoms of malaria. We did a malaria test, which was positive. They were given the appropriate treatment, and we reminded their mom that it is important that they sleep under a mosquito net.
February 26th, 2021
The triplets are doing very well. Their mom explained to us that they no longer drink milk and have now started eating porridge. We gave them a box of baby cereals, and we will see them again next month.
January 19th, 2021
The triplets, who were sick last week, came in for a check-up appointment. They no longer have fever or diarrhea, and Akossiwa’s mycosis is disappearing.
January 15th, 2021
The triplets came to the center for a consultation because they were vomiting and had liquid stools. The diagnosis was gastroenteritis. Akossiwa also had a temperature of 37.8°C. We did a malaria test, which was negative for all three children. We gave and administered the necessary treatment; antipyretic, antiemetic and antifungal. Indeed, in Togo, most of these infections are due to fungus or other parasites. They will come back for a check-up in a few days to evaluate their recovery.

Kossiwavi, Kossiwa and Kossi weigh 6.46 kg, 5.86 kg and 6.61 kg respectively. They have all gained between 350 g and 600 g in one month, and they are doing very well. Kossi has skin mycosis, for which we have given him the necessary treatment. We gave them two boxes of artificial milk as usual.
