Angela is three-year-old girl from the Philippines. Angela likes to play with her dolls and enjoys watching television. She lives with her parents in a bamboo house that has electricity. They get their water from a deep well. Her father works as a laborer. Angela has been diagnosed with moderately acute malnutrition. Malnutrition threatens Angela growth and development and could even be fatal if not addressed. Fortunately, she will begin $184 malnutrition treatment on February 23. Angela will be treated by International Care Ministries (ICM), a Watsi medical partner. One out of five children under five in ICM communities is either severely or moderately malnourished. Worldwide, poor nutrition is associated with nearly half of all deaths in young children. In remote communities and urban slums of the Philippines, the lack of clean water and unclean environments add risk to potentially fatal childhood diseases. ICM’s home-based feeding program provides nutrient-enriched food packs to ensure malnourished children get additional food to regain normal weight and achieve optimum physical and mental development. After identifying a child as malnourished, staff and community volunteers make weekly visits to monitor this child’s progress. To help sustain the health of the child, ICM’s professional staff educate the mother, guardian, or other family members about proper nutrition, sanitation, hygiene, and organic vegetable gardening. "I hope she recovers from malnutrition and becomes healthy" her mother says.
