Takonda

Takonda is pictured here with Nitta’s (one of our nurses). Takonda’s mother bled to death just after delivering her, leaving Takonda and two other young children motherless.  Takonda and her two year old brother now live with their maternal aunt.  Currently, Takonda is thriving in her aunt’s care with the support from our nurses, and the donated formula.  However, the family lives in desperate poverty and the addition of one small belly to feed is more than they can manage.  Takonda’s brother has deteriorated significantly since his mother’s death and our nurses are seeking additional support for him.  In Malawi, a mother’s death puts the lives of all her children at risk. We need your support to help him.
