Help Us To Help Vivian
Vivian a 3 year old girl has microcephaly. Vivan’s disability makes it difficult to keep her at a healthy weight. She weighs 5 kg. Children of this age should weigh an average of 13 kg. We give advice to her mother on how to feed her and encourage her to be active with her. Vivian gets four food packages a month, but that’s not enough for a child like Vivian.
Help Us Help Help Vivian. Support us in our fight to keep her at a healthy weight.

What is Microcephaly
Microcephaly is a condition where your baby’s head (Vivian in this case) is smaller than expected. Your baby may be born with a small head or this may become more apparent as they grow. Your baby may not have additional symptoms or the condition may affect her ability to learn and meet developmental milestones for her age. Supportive care and supervision are therefore very important.
