Oscar received successful malnutrition treatment.

Oscar has gained weight and grown taller. With continued treatment, Oscar will continue to grow and meet important developmental milestones.

Oscar’s mother says, “Thank you for the support that my son receives. For me it has been difficult when he gets sick, because I am pregnant, but I will keep taking care of him with God’s help and yours so that he can keep getting better, because I want to see him grow.”

Oscar is a twelve-month-old baby from Guatemala. He has been diagnosed with malnutrition. Oscar has had little energy to grow, and his immune system is weak, leaving him vulnerable to illnesses that further compromise his growth.

Oscar’s father works hard as a day laborer, but his income is limited. His mother takes care of the household. His parents want the best for him, but they cannot afford treatment for their son.

On January 12, Oscar will begin malnutrition treatment. Growth monitoring, micronutrients, and food supplementation will help Oscar recover. Treatment will give Oscar’s family tools to maintain nutritious diets. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is requesting $437 to fund this treatment.

“With your help, I know my son will get better, so that he grows healthy,” says Oscar’s mother. “When he is big, he can become a doctor.”
