Alesio in the beginning of his life nearly 6 months ago he said “Hello” to the world. After 6 months of life Alesio was admitted to Tirana public hospital, because he was diagnosed with bronchopneumonia, motor retardation and malnutrition. Currently his health condition is really bad. Alesio is 4 kilograms and his weight is the main cause of his health problems. When Alesio was born he was a very healthy child and weighed 3.5 kilograms, everything was looking good and his parents were very happy because Alesio was their first child. The problems started after two months because Alesio’s mother couldn’t feed the him with breast milk. In the absence of his mother’s milk Alesio was fed with cow’s milk and sugar dissolved in water. Alesio’s mother is only 15 years old and she is not able to take care of her little baby. Alesio’s mother, Adelina says she could do nothing to help her ill baby.
For more than two years Adelina was a regular attendee of REFLECT project. When she became pregnant she stopped coming to the ADRA centre because she was violated by her mother in-law.
Now Adelina and her little baby are in Tirana hospital and are asking for your help because they don’t have anyone that can support them. If you would like to help Alesio, please contact ADRA Albania at firstname.lastname@example.org.
