LINDA

Another feature of the Clinic is the LINDA Project. Many children brought to the Clinic are undernourished. They are referred immediately with their mothers to LINDA.

Here the undernourished children are fed with a particularly nutritious porridge until their physical development matches their age. On scheduled visits, the mothers learn how to make this porridge themselves with local, affordable ingredients.

The visits to LINDA are a platform of exchange with the women and the children are regularly weighed. Home visits provide opportunities to show how to filter water with sand, or how to prepare their own medicine using available, natural ingredients such as leaves and tree bark. The other women in the neighborhood learn as well.
