We’ve Reached Our Goal for 2023!

On The Ground

The first month of the new year has been a busy one for our doctors and nurses. We welcomed this beautiful and healthy set of twins. Mother Thelusma was followed in our prenatal clinic and the babies, Chrismaelle and Ruth Chamaelle, were born a little early and a little small but are doing very well. They will now be cared for in our well baby clinic. One of the main goals of the Kairam Well Baby Clinic is to closely monitor babies’ growth and development in order to prevent malnutrition in the future. These two are off to a good start!
