We’ll only be a few minutes, just enough time for a sip of hot coffee, or jebena as it’s called here, named after the ceramic cup which it is made and kept hot in.
For those celebrating Mother’s Day, we bring you to the Paediatric Clinic in Mayo, on the outskirts of the Sudanese capital Khartoum. This picture was taken in December 2019, when illnesses like cholera, rather than COVID, were the main concern.
In the middle of a cooking class, we were struck by this tender moment: a group of mothers laughing together. We strive to empower mothers and their children, providing them with nutritional advice and health education. We strive also to create an environment where they can feel at ease with their children as well as feel part of a bigger project, which starts with a healthy family and contributes to a healthy community.
As we have done every single day since 1994, EMERGENCY stands alongside every mother.
