Rosy

Meet Rosy, a one-year-old girl from Guatemala. Despite coming from a loving family, Rosy is chronically unwell as a result of acute malnutrition. “Rosy’s family is extremely poor, and the majority of her caloric intake comes from nutrient poor tortillas,” explains our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq (WK). “This diet has restricted Rosy’s ability to grow physically and mentally, and now she is hitting developmental milestones months behind an average child her age.” Without intervention, Rosy’s condition will impact her health and ability to succeed in school. Her immune system will be unable to successfully combat infections, translating into further sickness, low energy, and inability to concentrate. As a result, her ability to learn will decline, thus decreasing her likelihood of succeeding later in life. Rosy is an only child, so if her parents receive nutritional education and supplemental support, they will have a good chance of ensuring economic stability for the family. “I want what is best for my child,” says Rosy’s mother. “I have heard about what you do, and I hope you can help me be a better mother to her.” Rosy’s family can put Rosy’s health back on track with our help. For $535, Rosy will receive the proper treatment for her malnutrition. This treatment will supply her with growth monitoring, micronutrient and food supplementation, and medication for her to help her attain healthy growth. In addition, Rosy’s mother will receive nutrition education that will build her confidence in ensuring Rosy has a healthy childhood.
