Evelyn is a two-month-old girl from Guatemala. She is her parents’ first child, and they feel blessed to have Evelyn in their lives. Evelyn’s father works as a bus attendant, and her mother stays at home to take care of her. The family enjoys going to church together.
Due to feeding difficulties, Evelyn has not been able to gain the proper nutrients needed during this delicate time for brain development. Nutritionists at our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, provided a preliminary supply of formula to improve Evelyn’s diet while a nutritional plan is developed for her to begin formal treatment.
Through a combination of formula and nutritional education, Evelyn will receive the calories she needs to grow and thrive. She is scheduled to begin treatment on January 19.
“I hope that my daughter has the best opportunities to move forward in life,” says Evelyn’s mother.
Wuqu’ Kawoq is requesting $1,107 to fund Evelyn’s treatment. Proper nutrition will make Evelyn’s immune system strengthen, and she will grow to be a healthy, energetic baby.
