Case study: Saving babies in West Africa

“If I hadn’t come here, I don’t know what would have happened to my baby…luckily, we did come here.” Haoua, Niger

When Haoua first arrived at the CAFOD-funded St Augustine’s Health Centre in Niger, her 17-month-old daughter Hassana was severely malnourished and in danger of dying.

The team of expert nurses assessed Hassana and put her on a programme of food supplements, vitamins and antibiotics. In three weeks she was healthy again. “For me, the most important thing is the health of my children,” says Haoua. “My child is not suffering any more. I’m so happy about what I’ve received.”

This gift helps pay for a range of interventions; vaccinations, HIV testing, pre- and post-natal care, malaria treatment and extra food for children at risk of becoming malnourished.
