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.

Chifundo Chadewa Baby Formula Sponsorship

Chifundo  Chadewa joined the 2ndMilk family on March 21, 2021 at 1 year and 3 months old.  Chifundo is not only malnourished but is sick at this time.  The doctors aren't sure what is wrong with him yet.  They think it is a blood disorder but they released him because there has been no change in his health since they began treatment.

Sadly, Chifundo's mother passed away in December 2020 and left him orphaned. His father is still alive but lives elsewhere in Mozambique and doesn't make enough money to help take care of him.  His grandmother, who is taking care of 5 children of her own, doesn't make enough money to buy him the formula he needs to survive and thrive.  That is where we stepped in at 2ndMilk.  We are still looking for a sponsor for him at this moment.  Would you consider becoming a sponsor for Chifundo?

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.
