Mara, aged 22, gave birth three weeks after the typhoon died down.
Her daughter is called Veronica, after her grandfather’s favourite Saint. Veronica was premature, and Mara was sent home without proper antenatal care. It was her older sister who first taught her about breastfeeding.
Save The Children runs mobile health clinics and nutrition teams, which provide basic health services and educate women about the benefits of breastfeeding.
