The day that Felicite was born, her mother Lucienne was filled with blissful joy. However, that excitement soon turned to fear as Lucienne realized she was unable to breastfeed her child. A week later, desperate to feed Felicite, Lucienne went to her local Compassion center in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. The center immediately got to work, giving Lucienne a checkup while providing Felicite with lifesaving fortified milk. Through your support, Compassion paid for Lucienne’s medical bills and medicine and made sure her child was taken care of while she was healing. We are so joyful to report that after Felicite left our center, she continued growing and has officially overcome malnutrition and reached a healthy weight!
Survival offers moms and babies abundant water, healthy food, vitamins, milk and baby care supplies. Also, pre/post-natal care ensures healthy growth and prevents malnutrition and life-altering diseases that affect children under the age of 5. Moms are also invited into a community of support and love that offers Christian-centered education and parenting workshops.
