MMS Ambatolahy

2-year-old Rafale was brought in totally dehydrated with severe malnutrition, unable to open his eyes or hold his head up, walk or even sit up. He weighed 2.5kg, and his mother only 34kg. We gave him a drip to rehydrate, then vitamins and antibiotics. We also gave his mother an infusion. Rafaele was then kept in under observation. He will need strict medical follow-up.
