Infant Formula Program Gives Hope

Samfya, Zambia — Doreen adopted her niece, Mercy, after Doreen's sister died giving birth. Doreen brought Mercy to the nursing room at Samfya Community of Care Providers (SCCP), where she was treated for an eye infection. Besides taking in her sister's child, Doreen also has an infant of her own.

As a sudden mother of two babies, Doreen is now participating in our infant formula program to help with supplemental milk. As a participant of the program, she also receives education and "well-baby" check ups. With the help of SCCP and the loving commitment of Doreen, Mercy has a great start in life!
