« My baby is stronger and healthier »

A story, a need

Here we work all day. It doesn’t rain a lot. The harvests aren’t great and we don’t eat every day. I was worried about my baby.

A little step which has changed everything

A woman came to the village to tell us how to feed our babies well and what to do if they are ill. We also received food for our children and help planting vegetables.

A new start

All my life, I’ve followed our elders’ guidance. Now I’ve learned to have confidence in medicine. The vegetable garden gives us hope. My baby is already stronger and healthier.
