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.

Age: 1

Christian Adson Baby Formula Sponsorship

Christian was born on April 26, 2021.  He joined our program at 4 months old weighing only 12 lbs.  He is from Kudziwe village in the Nsundwe feeding center.  His mother died in July of 2021.  His guardian said that the mother had been sick starting from the time she was pregnant.  She was complaining of general body pains.  They took her to different hospitals but she could not get better until she gave birth to the baby.  After giving birth she coudln't breastfeed the baby because she was very weak and they had to feed the baby with cow's milk.  The mother died in July.  
The baby is staying with her grandmother who is very poor.  She is still feeding the baby cow's milk from the shops but it's not good for Christian.  The grandmother also has other grandchildren she is taking care of.  She is a seasonal farmer and did not harvest enough produce because of lack of farm inputs.  She is also doing piece work to make a living but it's not enough.  The father is still alive but he left when the mother was pregnant. 

Would you consider sponsoring baby Christian today?

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.
