Medika Mamba grads

We wanted to share a few of our recent medika mamba grads from the last few months.  We are very happy that we are able to continue this program here in Cazale.  The types of malnutrition we normally see are Marasmus (wasting), kwashiorkor (kwash) and Marasmic-Kwashiorkor, You can click here for the whole lesson from Unicef with more details of these 3 forms of malnutrition.  Due to Kwashiorkor causing edema you will see that some of their weights are high when admitted, but they must lose this “water weight” in their recovery process.
