We treat severe acute malnutrition in children, using a special ready-to-use therapeutic food called Medika Mamba. Patients and their caregivers come from all over Northwest Haiti to receive treatment and education.
Malnourished children are treated as they come weekly with their caregivers to have wellness checks, receive Medika Mamba, and attend education on various topics including basic nutrition, health and wellness, and hygiene.
In cases where breastfeeding is medically impossible or mothers have died, we provide formula to help families provide nourishment to their baby. Each week, caregivers come to receive a wellness check, formula, and education.
We advocate for breastfeeding as the best prevention of malnutrition. We provide hands-on support and education to help mothers and babies get the strong start they deserve on their breastfeeding journey.
