A Typical Tuesday

Today is Manba Day! Carmen took a bunch of pictures last week up at the clinic and I thought it might be fun for you to see what I’ll be doing today.

Explaining the ins and outs of the program to a new dad. (Yes folks, that’s all sweat on the t-shirt. Lovely isn’t it?)

Bobi admitting a new child. Each week families come back and we go through our consult where we ask them a list of questions about the child’s health from the past week and do a weigh in to check progress. After we have the current weight we can use the Manba charts to see how much Medika Manba they will need for that week and how many spoons they need to eat each day.

This little girl LOVES her Manba. She got pretty excited when I showed her the bag, even though it doesn’t really look like it here :)

Currently we’re seeing about 30 kids each week. We admitted 10 new ones last week alone and graduated 4! We’re excited to see a consistent flow of kids. It means that people are hearing about the program and know that it’s helping. It’s fun to see how the kids change from week to week. My very favorite thing about Tuesdays is working with the parents that are excited their kids are getting healthy and that there is a Manba program.
