"This 30-year-old farmer is the mother of a four-month-old child. Following the birth of her son, she had to take care of her three other children and was not producing enough milk to breastfeed the newborn. “I was so worried to see that my baby was not growing as he should,” she said. The child was born in Munduva, in Southern Mubi. His mother was advised by her family to take him to the stabilization centre because he was looking too skinny. “I strongly encourage other mothers to come here as soon as possible,” she said, “I am so happy to see him getting better, he is my blessing." The baby and his mother will leave the stabilization centre soon. “We don’t know when exactly, but the doctor is optimistic,” the mother said."
