Ornella’s story

Ornella’s story

“Dreaming for Change Feeding center has given my daughter a new life and hope,” says Cecile, Ornella’s mother.

My name is Cecile Nyabenda, my daughter is Ornella Niyera. She is eight years old. Ornella has been suffering from severe malnutrition for six years and hasn’t been able to go to school year because of her weak health condition. Ornella used to look almost elderly and her body was extremely thin and skeletal. She couldn’t stand and walk and I was ashamed to be with her in public places.

Since the coming of Dreaming for Change, Ornella’s condition has been visibly improved because she receives daily nutritional porridge to function. Before, I thought she had a physical disability but I was wrong, because today she can speak and stand up for a while. Now the white hair caused by malnutrition had disappeared; she’s added two kilograms of weight and her arms are getting healthier.
