Chisomo

Chisomo weighed less than 5lbs at birth and his mother died just moments after his first cry.  His low birth weight and his status as an orphan meant that from day one, Chisomo was much more likely to die in early childhood than his peers.  Thankfully, his grandmother was directed to Joyful Motherhood and has been receiving home based support from our nurses.  He is now 3 months old and his chubby cheeks are a sign of good loving good care.  Evenso, it is important to remember that he still has a long road ahead of him.  Malaria, diarrheal illnesses and household food insecurity will continue to threaten his well being.  With your help we can ensure that AMHI and Joyful Motherhood will stand by his family until his second birthday.
