Here, when a child cries from hunger, it means that their condition is improving.
Sometimes we read questions in the comments from those who don’t know us – but what’s the point? Are you going to feed every child who comes to the centre like this? And we will confidently answer – YES, every single one. No child deserves to go hungry. We are grateful that with you we can fight for them.
When Denise arrived at our centre, she was so weak that she did not have the strength to cry. Lack of appetite occurs in advanced hunger sickness, as if the body already wants to communicate that it has had enough. That it is giving up. The girl’s hands were so skinny (hunger literally eats muscle) that they could not manage to hold the bowl.
We didn’t give up – after all, with you we can do the impossible!
Today, in addition to the typical medical food, Denise receives fresh fish from us, for which the centre’s staff travel all the way to Uganda. Her condition, gram by gram, is improving, although we are still treating her TB – she is facing 6 months of treatment. The effects of the treatment and nutrition are visible to the naked eye and it is to your credit!
Everyone who has donated a meal to Denise in recent weeks is a superhero, saving a child’s life. We thank you that instead of watching them on cinema screens, you yourselves become heroes every day.
Hunger is the easiest disease to cure. You don’t need huge amounts of money, muscle or superpowers here. Visit GoodWorks 24/7 and donate another meal to Denise.
