Monitoring growth for children in the community

Atimango and her grandmother
Atimango and her grandmother

Alice Atimango is 4 and her sister Lucy Ayaa 6 years live with their
grandmother.  They also live with 2 other sisters and grandfather. These children are dependant on their grandparents becuase they lost their parents from AIDS. Their grandfather can hardly fend for this family
as he is old and weak. The children have to help in the garden in order to grow some food. They sometimes miss school becuase of this. When they are ill, they take long to go to the health centre, becuase they cannot afford the health cost.

The health centre pysician advised thier mother to ensure that the children are fed well.
The children received deworming tabltes and Vit A tablets, to boost their immunity. Thier grandmother has also enrolled in the savings group club so that she can benefit from the loans program, that is supporting many other mothers.

We now notice that when Atimango and her siblings visit the centre and attend school regulalry, they are a lot happier. We shall continue monitoring thier status and growth and encourgae their grandmother to keep attending the support group.

Because of your support children like Atimango;s health problems are decreasing, and his future looks much brighter.

p.s. The children are eager to attend school, we are looking for support for these children. We would love to see them attned school. Currently they are hardly attending school because they need to look for for food and immediate needs first.

Thank you.
