Field Highlight: Cyrus in Liberia

by User Not Found | Apr 23, 2014


Cyrus is a general Community Health Volunteer for Kebede Clinic in Sinoe County, Liberia.  A woman came to see him with a swollen nipple that had become infected after she gave birth and started breast feeding. He referred her to a clinic where she was treated with anti-biotics and was able to go home the same day to her family. If it had not been treated early, it could have grown more serious and endangered not only the mother’s life but the newborn baby’s as well.
