“No words can describe my happiness. I can’t believe that he improved remarkably” said Maher’s mother.
When his mother first brought Maher to the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) malnutrition clinic supported by Canadian Red Cross, he weighed just 3.7 kilograms – less than average for his age, and suffered sleep disorder and dermal disease. He was diagnosed with severe malnutrition and submitted to proper treatment by SARC nutrition specialist. After a medical trip of four months, he perfectly recovered and weighed 9 kilograms. Today, the seven-months baby has got his smile that warms everyone’s heart.
