Notes
Irene went to Nabikenge to teach about signs and symptoms and prevention of skin diseases. But the community members could not gather for the lesson because they had lost one of the elders in the village. Irene managed to visit one of the mothers whom she met three months ago who had given birth to a very small baby, she was so frustrated because she has been giving birth to big babies. Irene encouraged the mother to continue taking good care of her baby, immunize,and maintain proper hygiene so as to keep the baby healthy.
