Disciples village nurse, Ms. Andremene, has been quite busy over the last month and we are so thankful to have her on staff to serve many in need! Her professionalism and expertise are such a blessing to the children and expectant moms she serves. The work she is doing makes a huge difference in restoring and maintaining health in an already ‘at risk’ population!
The Disciples Village schools who a feeding program in place also have a malnourishment tracking and training program that Nurse Andremene oversees. She continually monitors the status and progress of the children from the time they begin the program. Andremene visits the schools on a rotation and collects height and weight data allowing her to monitor the BMI for adequate nutritional intake. If any child in the program is identified as having a decreased weight consistent with moderate to severe malnutrition, she provides multivitamins monthly while also continuing to closely monitor the weight of those children.
Nurse Andremene also provides very important education through our Healthy Moms Healthy Babies Program targeting expectant mother’s as well as those moms who have delivered their babies and are now breastfeeding. Kits are distributed to the moms through this program that include the following items: pampers, soap, alcohol, toothpaste, crackers, rice and beans.
We are so thankful to have Andremene serving as the staff nurse for Disciples’ Village and ask that you keep her and the people she ministers to in your prayers.
