Burkina Faso is experiencing political instability that has plunged the country into one of the most serious migration crises in its history. Close to 2 million people have been displaced from their homes. Amssétou and her one-month old son Abdoul had to flee their home due to terrorist attacks. While fleeing, food was scarce, and Abdoul quickly became malnourished. Amssétou took Abdoul to the intensive nutritional recovery center in the Ouahigouya Regional University Hospital, where he was treated by ALIMA’s teams. Amssétou was surprised by the quality of care she and her son received. She says “In the recovery center, my child was taken care of immediately. He received free care, in addition to milk, soap, water, and toys. They treated us like family members. They play with the children and take good care of them. I am also less stressed since I have been receiving support from a mental health worker.” Following admission to the hospital, both mother and son are recovering well. Abdoul is more alert, able to smile, and play with his mother. Amssétou is also able to smile again, after receiving mental health support and seeing her son gain strength every day.
