Nutritionists Patricia and Melan work with a little one who came to Kijabe from a refugee camp in northeast Kenya. An illness quickly put the previously healthy child in a perilous situation and she was brought to Kijabe for care. The nutrition team educates Mum on how to care for her child in the coming weeks and months using nutrition products and foods available locally like sukuma wiki. Two products will be sent home with the family, a supplement to mix with uji (porridge) and ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF).
Please pray for the little ones of Kenya and surrounding nations who live in such a precarious situation. We thank global NGO’s like UNICEF and Mana Nutrition for providing a way to care for these precious children after they return to their communities.
