“My daughter is the first girl among five children. She was 15 years when she had this child, it was her first baby. She was only 6 months pregnant when she got an attack of malaria which she treated but it still started her labour. Her baby girl was born normally but weighed only 1.010kg. I was fearful and I doubted life for the little soul. I had no hope that the baby would live. Today, after 5 weeks, I am happy we are going home. My advice to other mothers like my daughter is not to loose hope and be receptive to treatment. I decided to take care of my treasure (her grandchild) and I hope she will grow into a better person in the future and I hope that my daughter will go back to school.”
