Though some of the children do arrive at the centre looking very poorly it is amazing to see what a difference can be made within a few weeks
This photo was taken on my last full day in Ghana. You see some scarring on his legs and arms but in general this is a happy, cheeky young man who is starting to behave in a way you would expect of a 3 year old (tantrums included). His face is fuller and he was interested in the world around him and very taken with the camera.
As well as treating children's immediate need, the nutrition centre also runs an education programme for the mothers, making sure that these women know about things such as healthy eating, hygiene, sickness prevention, basic healthcare and birth control.
