This amazing charity gift is helping mums like Unity and her baby Twalumba in Kariyangwe, Zimbabwe. When Twalumba was born, Unity didn’t know how to feed him. She managed to breastfeed but the milk spilled out of his mouth and nose. Her baby boy was growing but not as well as other children his age.
Unity joined a local support group for new mums, run by an older and more experienced 'Lead Mother', Mavis. Mavis was given training on nutrition, breastfeeding by CAFOD and now does home visits to pregnant and new mothers in her community. She can even run cooking demonstrations with new mums.
Mavis visited Unity at home and supported her with feeding Twalumba. The five-month-old is now feeding well, growing well, and is healthy and happy.
Your support for mums like Unity and Mavis is working. Since the training and Lead Mother support groups were set up, the number of children with malnutrition in Kariyangwe has dramatically reduced.
