Updates from CHEERing Afghanistan

CHEERing’s Herat team have leapt into action to help the world’s neediest children. As word spreads, Samana, our midwife-leader has been called to visit some desperate families at home, and many mothers are bringing children to the Grow Clinic with disabilities and severe nutritional needs.

Mothers are breastfeeding their infants, but toddlers and older children are malnourished to near-starvation levels. We’re providing high-nutrient loaded foods targeted at the poorest families, under the supervision of our medically qualified female health professional team, as well as basic medical supplies.

A sobering project we’re need to survive. Photos with permission, copyrighted CHEERing.
