We wanted to share a quick update on how the Lawra Nutrition Center is doing. The nutrition center, which is located at the Lawra District Hospital, provides therapeutic food to children who are suffering from severe malnutrition and offers nutritional education for the caregivers of patients. Since opening in October of last year, the center has treated a total of 37 children! The center saw the highest number of patients when it first opened, treating 14 children in the first month. However, malnutrition is prevalent throughout the Upper West Region and so the center has continued to see a steady influx of patients since, treating 4 new patients in January. Patience Gaa, the Nutrition Officer in charge of facilitating the nutrition center, is also planning a training on the management of severe malnutrition for the staff of the Lawra District Hospital. The training will be facilitated by three regional experts on malnutrition and will hopefully be taking place at the end of February or early March. We are excited to see the plans for the training advance and the continued treatment and recovery of children with malnourishment.
