Saving babies in Zimbabwe
Delinah brought her seven-month-old baby, Muzina, to a mobile health clinic supported by CAFOD. She was worried that Muzina wasn’t growing.
“It brought me shame to carry a baby that was not growing properly. But I didn’t know why it was happening. Now I know why.”
Muzina was severely malnourished. Through the mobile clinic, he was referred to the hospital for an emergency nutrition paste made from peanuts. Access to medical care like this is essential, but mums like Delinah also need advice and support to keep their babies healthy.
Becoming a mother is a life-changing and amazing experience. It can also be scary and tiring. That’s why so many parents in the UK join classes and groups that provide moral and practical support.
