Immanuel - God with us – Matthew 1:23
Warm Advent greetings from an exceptionally hot Kilifi! Our offices have been without air conditioning for almost a year as the hospital tries to source a new larger transformer. I’m wilting a bit in the afternoons.
The feedback meetings in August and September in Jaribuni on the Barriers to Breastfeeding study went well and Prudence was the star of the show as she shared our research findings and recommendations with her community members in the local Kikauma language. In a setting where girls’ education is not a priority, she shines as a role model, as a local woman who has finished secondary school and has a job with the research unit. There is some money left over in the study account which I plan to use for further training of health workers and community health volunteers to support young mothers in infant feeding.
