Dagim lives with his mother. Although he is 6 years old, he still hasn’t joined school yet. His mother says that he fell when he was a little boy and has had health problems ever since. His father left when he was 3 years old and because Dagim's mother had no one else to support them, hasn’t been able to get Dagim professional medical care. Dagim’s mother is disabled but she fetches water in order to pay for house rent. Dagim and his mother are in immediate need of nutritional support.
