Esvin received therapy to treat malnutrition.

Esvin’s doctors report, “Esvin has made a total turn around over the last month or so. He has gained a large amount of weight, and his energy and appetite are remarkably improved. He was so close to death or serious permanent harm from acute malnutrition, and now he looks happy and healthy again!”

Esvin’s mom tells us, “I had given up hope, because nothing I tried ever worked.” She is extremely grateful for the help she’s received that has given her son a new chance at life.

Meet 2-year-old Esvin from Guatemala! Esvin lives with his mom and siblings.

Esvin “has severe developmental delay and severe malnutrition,” our medical partner, Wuku’ Kawoq tells us. “In addition, he has very weak limp muscles and has very little language and motor development.”

“Esvin will need a complete medical workup to eliminate treatable medical conditions,” explains Wuku Kawoq. “Then we will provide him with high-level, aggressive nutrition therapy to cure his acute malnutrition. Finally, he will need speech and physical therapy to help him regain milestones and start developing normally again.”

Esvin’s mom shares that she hopes he will “grow like my other children.” Treatment for Esvin costs $1,385. Let’s help ensure that Esvin gets the happy and healthy life he deserves!
