Project Report | Apr 6, 2011
Succeeding

By AIL Staff | Project Leaders

A doctor in one of AIL’s rural clinics shared the following story: 

“One day a woman came into our clinic with her baby. She said the baby was very weak and had some breathing problems.  After weighing and measuring the baby, it was clear that the baby was undernourished.  I asked the mother if the baby had been given powder formula and she said yes.  She had breastfed the baby until she was one year old and then gave her formula.  I talked with the mother about good nutrition and about feeding the baby less at one time but more times per day.  I gave her some nutrition powder and other medicine for the baby.  The lady came back two weeks later to get some more medicine and then she returned two weeks after that and her baby was doing much better.  I weighed and measured the baby again and this time it was better.  The mother was so happy that the baby was doing so much better.”

According to all of the AIL Health staff, “It is the health education and the personal attention  that we give the patients that has made the most difference in the health of the women and children who come to our clinics.”
