Laura received successful malnutrition treatment.

Since beginning treatment for malnutrition, Laura has been gaining weight and growing taller. Laura’s mother says that she has learned a great deal in the nutrition classes. With continued treatment, we are confident that Laura will continue to grow and thrive.

Laura’s mother says, “Thank you to the institution for the work you are doing with my daughter so that she can be healthy. In the future I hope for my daughter to study and one day become a professional.”

Laura is a six-month-old baby girl from rural Guatemala. Her father works in agriculture, and her mother weaves. Both her parents work very hard to ensure the best for their daughter and their family.

Laura is currently malnourished, due to low consumption of protein, calories, and nutrients. The short-term effects of malnutrition have rendered Laura vulnerable to illness and have significantly stunted her growth compared to her peers. In the long term, she could face increased risk of chronic diseases and delayed brain development.

Luckily, this condition can be easily treated with growth monitoring, micronutrients, and food supplementation. On January 19, Laura will begin treatment. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is requesting $437 for little Laura.

Treatment will give Laura the chance to grow and live a healthy life.
