Ivory Coast Mothers and Children


Our new laboratory was set up 5 days ago thanks to CaringCrowd. Our technician, Ange, and Doctor Felix, got to work immediately to diagnose a young child, Samuel, who at 2 yrs cannot hold up his head. He is malnourished and needs medicine that our pharmacy does not have. There are many cases like Samuel where malnutrition increases susceptibility to and severity of infections, and is thus a major component of illness and death from disease (WHO)and a supply of medicine is critically needed.
