As we stated in an earlier blog post, the Lawra Nutrition Rehabilitation Center officially opened in mid-October! We are excited to report that the center has treated 14 children and provided nutritional education to 30 mothers during it's first month of operation! Now that the center is open, we are in the midst of planning a second training for Patience Gaa, the Nutrition Officer in charge of the nutrition center, and other members of the Lawra District Hospital staff. This training will educate the additional members of staff on the management of severe malnutrition to better involve the entire hospital in the nutrition center. We look forward to hearing more good news about patients being treated at the center in the coming month but until then here are some recent pictures at the nutrition center.
