Congrats to Shaista!

Shaista Karimi, CHEERing’s wonderful Farsi translator, is now officially our breastfeeding counselor as well! Shaista completed the Lactation Education Resources 20 hours online course which gives her an in-depth knowledge of lactation and breastfeeding’s contextual setting. We are grateful to Shaista for all her help, and to Help Refugees who helped fund CHEERing to train former refugees. Shaista works with the CHEERing team in their visits to 4 refugee camps and the Elna Maternity Center in greater Athens, weighing and measuring babies, and offering advice and support to women about infant feeding. Congratulations Shaista on completing this in depth, evidence based breastfeeding course!
