Last inspection- still in Cateel, Davao Oriental we went side trip buying some coal (oling) at the nearby barrios. We saw a twin. They were a month old and were born just at their home by some comadrona (hilot). They were thin and malnourished. I even suspect one to have hydrocephalus (Did I spell it right? I hope so). My heart is like torn to see such sight. Asking their mom if she breastfeeds, and she said, “no” and the formula that she use was that for the grown ups. Lucky to those people who have everything to feed their children and the ability to send them to hospitals.

Hoping good on them. Be happy.
