Fighting malnutrition in Mwanza

UNICEF Malawi/2017/Phwitiko

The family of Agnes and Julius Goza is not your typical rural Malawian household. Although far from living comfortably, this young enterprising couple is not struggling as much as some of their neighbors. With a goat pen in the homestead, a couple of chickens, and a vegetable garden it is hard to believe that their son, Madalitso would become malnourished. But that is exactly what happened.
“It is a miracle that he is alive today, and healthy too,” says his mother Agnes Julius. The first few months of his life were pretty tough for him and his parents; he had constant diarrhea and was losing so much weight.
