Some of the greatest needs in Camp BidiBidi are caring for pregnant women, newborn babies, and nursing mothers. Many of these women have lost their husbands to the ravages of war.
Previously, many pregnant women and nursing mothers could not get enough food and other basic needs which led to many births of underweight babies and the development of early childhood malnutrition. Since the beginning of the support to this vulnerable group of people, there has been improved health among the women and reduced childhood malnutrition. To date, 450 women have benefited from this service!
The supplies provided include cassava flour mixed with cereal flour, rice, cooking oil, iodized salt, sugar, tea leaves and other supplies such as clothing, towels, basins, Vaseline, washing and bathing soap.
