Community Infant Milk and Food Supplement Program

October 2017 Community Infant Milk and Food Supplement Program Update

Infant Milk Supplement Program:

Accasou and Angelina are happy, healthy, thriving four month old twins, but it wasn’t’ always like it is now. When the twins were born their future was very bleak. They were very small and their mother had gotten pregnant while she was very sick and on very strong medications that should be avoided during pregnancy. We were unsure if the babies would survive, primarily because of the medications the mom had been taking.

INFANT MILK PROGRAM UPDATE:

Meet Marcos. He and his two brothers began receiving regularly from our infant milk assistance program at Iris Zimpeto when their mother was unable to provide for them. They were underweight and needed our help. Now, just turning one, we had the joy of graduating them from the program. They are at a healthy weight and doing great!

Infant Milk Supplement Story:

Six month old twins Olga and Delfina joined the Milk Program at one month of age, each weighing only 1.85 kg; a weight which is well below the -3Z score according to the WHO, (World Health Organization).

Now, pictured with their mum after collecting their milk, they have moved to a much healthier weight  range.

Infant Milk Supplement Story: From Trash to Treasure

Meet 'Bemvinda Graca', translated as 'Welcome Grace', who was found abandoned by her Mama in a rubbish dump. Her Uncle followed the sounds of what he thought was a hungry kitten in the trash, and instead found his precious niece. Today Graca is lovingly cared for by the uncle and his wife, and Iris is pleased to provide them with powdered milk formula. As the photo shows, this little one is a treasure!

September 2014 Community Infant Milk and Food Supplement Program Update

Angelo, Antonio, and Abel, a set of triplets, began with our milk program at 6 weeks of age. Their weights were all well below the WHO -3Z score for their ages.

Over the last six weeks, as they have consistently received the milk supplements, all 3 of them have gained a little more than one and a half kilograms each.

May 2013 Community Infant Milk and Food Supplement Program Update

The program continues much the same as in our previous updates. We thought the best encouragement would be to share just one of many recent stories of lives being transformed. 

Baby Flórida was born June 1, 2012. At 8 months of age, after her mother died, an Aunt brought this little one to our milk program. When we first met and weighed Florida she was 8.1 lbs. and was completely malnourished. Now, only two months later, she is weighing in at 10.4 lbs.. Because of our help, this child will survive. This gives us such great hope.  Thank you from Mozambique to Canada!
