Treatment of undernutrition
When we first met René, his father had just had an accident, and was under treatment at home. Since the accident, the family had limited income, and they were struggling to provide for their three children. In addition, René’s mother only had very little milk as he could not breastfeed properly. He had a poor grip and got tired quickly. As a result, she produced less and less milk, and René was suffering from extreme undernutrition. At 2 months-old, on the day we first met him, he only weighed 2.15 kg.
