Brenda is a nine-month-old baby girl from Guatemala. She lives with her parents and three older siblings. On Sundays, her family enjoys being together and attending mass. Brenda’s favorite foods are hard boiled eggs and bananas.

Brenda was recently diagnosed with malnutrition. On February 16, Brenda will begin treatment at our medical partner’s care center, Clinic Tecpán. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is asking for $437 to cover the costs of nutrient and food supplementation. This will also pay for an education program that will teach her mother how to create a nutrient-rich diet from limited resources.

“I am very happy, because I hope that through the program, my daughter will be able to improve her development,” says Brenda’s mother.
