Zimpeto Community Infant Milk and Food Supplement Program

April 2021 Zimpeto Community Infant Milk and Food Supplement Program Update

Infant Milk Supplement Program:

Delfa was admitted to the Community Infant Milk Program in 2020. She was the result of rape, and her mother refused to care. By her 5th day of life, she was malnourished, dehydrated, and had lost 0.27kg of her 3.1kg birth weight. Her mother’s sister-in-law took the baby into her home to care for her as her own, and named her Delfa, which means ‘royal first born’.

Infant Milk Supplement Program:

We would like to highlight to you little El Shaddai, who just recently joined our milk supplementation program. She is one of the many babies we have the privilege to helping each week. El Shaddai's mom needed help because she was unable to produce breast milk and had no means to buy formula for her young baby; she was feeding the baby mashed up crackers and water. El Shaddai is still very young, and the essential nutrients found in milk are so important in early development.

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.
