Summary

I asked the head nurse for our Neonatal ICU at the orphanage to give me a "list" of our sick and struggling children. We currently have 15 very sick and malnourished children and a total of almost 50 who still drink formula. These children need proper nutrition and that proper nutrition comes in the form of infant formula that is designed specifically to meet the needs of sick and malnourished children. Help us provide the right baby formula and we can give these children a chance at life.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Many of the babies that come to us are very sick. We currently have 1 premature babies, 3 HIV babies, 1 with sickle cell, 3 downs syndrome babies, 1 with multiple heart defects, 1 with a genetic anomaly, 1 with TB, 2 with oral herpes and 2 with severe ear infections. These children will have virtually no chance at a long healthy life without the right nutrition to help them grow and overcome their health challenges. Providing the right formula will give them a chance. Will you help?

How will this project solve this problem?

Given the right nutrition, many of the 15 sick children will have a chance at a long and healthy life. Without the proper nutrition, they have virtually no chance. Having enough of the right types of formula will enable us to give them the tools to grow, heal and overcome many of the physical challenges that they have. We have almost 50 children who will benefit from a consistent and healthy supply of baby formula.

Potential Long Term Impact

The long term effect of having enough of the right types of formula is that the really really sick babies will be given the tools that they need to get healthy. Without proper nutrition, there is no chance that they will survive. With enough of the right type of nutrition (formula), they will have a chance at growing up and living a long life. We currently have almost 50 children who are impacted by the amount of baby formula that we have. Thank you for giving them a chance!
