    Keeping babies safe and strong

    Day 341

    On a Mission to Help Mothers

    One of our head doctors in East Darfur, Dr. Kalthoum, is on a mission. She’s seen many mothers struggle with breastfeeding complications, and she had the amazing idea to help provide formula as an alternative.

    As Dr. Kalthoum explained, “In some situations, the mother’s milk decreases due to their sickness or a hormone disorder. Also, sometimes three or four months after giving birth to a baby, mothers stop breastfeeding the newborn child, and this affects the child’s growth and health.”

    But formula isn’t readily available, especially if you don’t have the money to purchase it in town. This can be hard! Being a new mother is already full of new challenges, and Dr. Kalthoum wanted to ensure that worrying about what a baby will eat isn’t one of them.

    Under Dr. Kalthoum’s guidance, we were able to source the proper formula so mothers can have peace of mind about their children’s health!

    “This formula will go a long way to making sure babies are healthy!” Dr. Kalthoum told us.

    Here’s to the next generation of babies growing up healthy and strong in East Darfur.
