RESCUING MALNOURISHED BABIES

SPONSOR A BABY

The most tangible and practical way you can save a baby’s life is through directly sponsoring a baby, which provides the formula and nutritional needs for the baby of your choosing. Select the baby you would like to provide formula and healthy nutrition for.

Eddah Julius

Age: 1

Eddah Julius Baby Formula Sponsorship

Eddah Julius was born on August 26, 2020 and comes from Chidya village in Nsundwe. She weighed 6.3 lbs. at birth and on the day we enrolled her weighed 9.2 lbs.  

Her mother died on November 4, 2020.  She was mentally ill and after visiting several hospitals there was no change.  A few days later, she fell into a well and died. 

Her father is alive but he just left the family after his wife died because he was disturbed by her death and currently is not helping the family.  As of now, the baby is living with her grandmother who doesn't have the money to buy formula for Eddah.  She was feeding her water and powdered cow's milk, which is not good for Eddah.  She is enrolled temporarily into our program pending sponsorship for the next 3 months.  

Would you please consider sponsoring baby Eddah?

WHAT DOES YOUR SPONSORSHIP COVER?

This is the best question we can answer for each of our partners when they make the decision to save one of these orphaned babies.

First, know that 100% of your sponsorship dollars actually goes to the babies. A sponsorship provides real tangible things like daily formula, bottles, new clothes, medical care, and a porridge full of vita-meal. This may sound like the same story you have heard over and over again but rest assured it isn’t.

This sponsorship will save the life of the baby you just sponsored. We aren’t a ministry that gives a bowl of maize once per day and say we are feeding children.  The 2ndMilk children get the same nutrition daily that your children receive because at the end of the day we don’t feel they deserve anything less.

SIGNS OF ACUTE MALNUTRITION

Acute malnourishment comes in many forms and at times it can even be hard to see while other times it may be very hard for us to look at a child experiencing severe malnourishment. Sure, we have all seen the tiny baby with droopy skin and bones but we also see a lot of babies that are experiencing a protein deficiency called Kwashiorkor. This causes their stomachs to swell as well as their legs and feet.

HOW DOES FORMULA HELP?

We all know and understand that infants require either mothers milk or a formula that allows them to receive the nutrients and vitamins their bodies require for proper growth. We purchase our powdered formula in the countries we work in to help the local economy and allow our teams to have quick access to the truckloads of formula we purchase monthly.
