Mussa was referred to our Mangochi Infant Home for urgent care at just one month old, after his mother sadly died during childbirth. His relatives could not take on his care and he became poorly so he came to Open Arms to receive the care and nutrition he needed to survive.
Looking to the future
If Mussa continues to make good progress, he will return to his family at around two years old. A happy, healthy toddler who can eat solid food and thrive in village life.
Our support doesn’t end there. Muawa, Mussa’s home village, houses one of our community owned nurseries and feeding stations. When he returns home, Mussa will be able to attend for a daily meal of protein-rich porridge, early education and a secure place to learn. His development will include sensory skills, basic hygiene and socialisation with his peers.
The benefits of this will last a lifetime. Access to early education will give Mussa the best possible start when he goes to school. He will be fed and learn basic skills - increasing his chances of finishing school and giving him more options in the future.
