Yamikani and Mayamiko are twins brothers born on August 6, 2021. Due to their mother's physical and mental health, she and her five children are being cared for by her mother, who has no stable source of income. Both twins are currently breastfeeding, but their mother will likely not produce enough breastmilk for both babies. Upon assessment, Yamikani weighed 2.25kgs, indicating he is severely underweight for his age. Both twins would greatly benefit from formula supplementation.
