Twins Ana and Lisa
Sweet Ana and her twin sister Lisa came to the Mukono Baby home in January under very sad circumstances. Their mother had died soon after their birth from post-partum complications, possibly as a result of malaria. When the twins first entered the Mukono Baby Room, blood work indicated that Lisa was suffering from congenital malaria, in which the parasites are transmitted either during pregnancy or during labor. Congenital malaria can result in prematurity and slower weight gain in newborns.
