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.

Francis Yosefe Baby Formula Sponsorship

Francis Yosefe was born on August 25th, 2021. He was admitted into our program at 6 months old. On admission, he weighed 13.64 lb (6.2 kg) and measured to be 24.42 in (62 cm) long. He currently lives in the Mtenga village and visits our feeding center in Gwawa.

His mother died in September of 2021 after complaining of severe headaches for 3 weeks. His father is alive but he left after his wife's burial and has not provided any support for Francis since he left.

Francis now lives with his aunt and cousin. His aunt has a small business selling maize and vegetables but the business does not provide enough money to buy formula.

Would you consider sponsoring Francis so he can get the necessary formula and nutrition that he needs?


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.


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.


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.
