Horn of Africa – Meru food distribution – Part Three

Posted on

As we've spent time at this food distribution activity we've been able to interact with the various mothers that are coming through and one of the young ladies that I've spoken to is Medelia who has a child her son Anthony has cerebral palsy since he was eight months old and she has had to take care of him and spend a lot of time caring for his needs as he is unable to be independent.

because of that she has had a challenge with the situation that has been brought about because of the drought.

Medelia says that the food she has been receiving today it is going to assist her in taking better care of her son We've noticed that there seems to be quite a high number of people living with disabilities we've seen children who are visually impaired and who are blind, we've seen quite a number of adults and children with physical disabilities and I am glad that we are able to work together with our partner SPARK in order not just to meet their needs for food aid but also to be able to follow them up later, and provide the services that will be required the screening services, the assistive devices the follow-up and the care for children and mothers like Medelia.
