After working diligently for weeks, Mercy has finally been able to secure Plumpy'nut from the government to help address Abu-Bakarr's specific nutritional needs. There was a lot of red tape but now we have a three month supply. This is significant because the government typically only provides Plumpy'nut to malnourished children under five years of age, and Abu Bakarr is 10. He eats 6 packets per day (500 kcal each), in addition to the Sierramix supplement he has been receiving since arriving at Mercy through its nutrition program, and three healthy, protein-rich meals a day provided to him from the CRC kitchen. He continues to improve day by day.
