@lets_shareid Alfredo (2) had been suffering from diarrhoea for two days when his worried mother, Yosina, took him to the Puskesmas near their rural farming community in NTT. Alfredo was very weak and looked pale. The health worker on duty confirmed that Alfredo had severe acute malnutrition (SAM). “I was shocked to learn from what Alfredo was suffering, and that it made him so vulnerable that it could even lead to death”, said Yosina. Yosina directly enrolled him in the Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) programme for children aged 6-59 months. Though the cost of the one-hour round trip ($4) to the Puskesmas for Alfredo’s weekly treatment would be a significant expenditure for the family of subsistence rice farmers, she and her husband agreed it was important for the sake of Alfredo’s future. UNICEF is working with the Ministry of Health to introduce this life-saving approach to treating severe acute malnutrition in Indonesia. Let’s Share wants to support this work in NTT.
