Baby Feeding Programme
The Baby Feeding Programme feeds an increasing number of babies in our local area Chikwawa. Every 2 weeks we weigh and check the
progress of the babies and supply milk formula to parents and guardians. We take good care ensuring the babies are healthy and are of a good weight to survive a poverty-stricken life. However, we continuously need your help because more mothers and babies arrive at our doors daily and we do not have enough supplies to meet the need due to funding.
Can you imagine the heartache of families who grieve and strive to feed the baby because the mother dies during child birth or in consequence siblings or grandparents are forced to become guardians, some as young as 10 or some as old as 80? Some mothers tell us they feel ashamed because they’re unable to produce milk for their own baby due to poor health, diet or HIV; they simply have no money to buy formula. This is a harsh reality for parents and guardians visiting our Baby Ministry.
There is hope! 1 in 34 mothers die during child birth, although this epidemic tragedy seems hopeless, we are dedicated in finding solutions. For example, we aim to educate to-be mothers on safe-pregnancy and we currently teach mothers and guardians in best-practice baby care and gaining the resources and provision they need. Your help and prayers are always welcomed. Be part of something inspiring!
