Kentine Iranyishuye was brought to our One Cup A day program by her sister. With One Cup a Day, we provide fortified porridge to 560 children every morning to fight malnutrition in young children and feed children living in poverty. When Kentine joined us, she was 1 year old and weighed 4 kilos. Since she showed clear symptoms of malnutrition, we assigned her a nurse to check on her on a regular basis. With the nurse’s advice, we took Kentine to a nutrition center where she stayed for 3 weeks. During her time at the nutrition center, Kentine was given supplements to complement her diet as well as some prescribed medicine.
At the end of the 3 weeks, she had gained an additional 1kg and a half. Gradually, we saw Kentine grow stronger and healthier. Today, Kentine is a healthy and beautiful 4 year old now who no longer suffers from malnutrition.
