In an old building Marie Pierre takes care of so-called snake children - children with severe cerebral palsy who are abandoned due to excessive demands and left to their own devices or to die. The Ivorian started with nothing, but with a big heart and trust in God. Today she takes care of 20 children, and the women who help her can all be paid a small salary. We support the project with CFA 1,000,000 per month, which is about CHF 1,500.

Mothers/Children Project Anani

marietta sandrineTaking care of mothers and their babies: Mariette and Sandrine.

Anani is a small village near our neighborhood where famine is severe. A woman from Mauritius, Mariette, has set up a baby feeding program so that the mothers no longer must come all the way to us. We support the project with 200'000 CFA per month (this corresponds to about CHF370.-).
