With anguish in her voice, Phansamone talks about her 3-month-old son who died in her arms just last year. “He got sick and cried all night,” she wept. “I took him to a witch doctor for treatment, but his stomach got really big, and he got sicker. I also bought medicine, but he died.”
Her story got worse. Phansamone told me she has given birth four times. The baby she now holds in her arms is the only one to survive … so far.
You can help ensure Phansamone’s baby lives. If she makes it to her fifth birthday, she’ll have a much higher chance of survival.
