Saving Children’s Lives
When Doa’a arrived to our therapeutic feeding centre in Yemen, she was suffering from pneumonia and severe acute malnutrition – the most dangerous form of malnutrition. She was so weak she couldn’t even breastfeed. Without treatment, a child as weak as Doa’a will quickly die.
Thanks to our supporters, UNICEF teams are on the ground ready to help. Doa’a was given immediate treatment of fortified milk to help her regain her strength and medicines to treat her pneumonia. Soon she was strong enough to go home.
Happy again and restored to health, baby Doa’a is now back in the care of her parents. Her recovery was made possible because of the kind donations, which paid for the fortified milk and medicines needed to save her life.
“It is enough for me that my daughter returned to the house alive and that she smiles and laughs,” Doa’a’s father Hussein added happily.
