Marvin is a two-year-old boy from the Philippines. He has been diagnosed with malnutrition.
He will be receiving treatment through our medical partner’s home-based malnutrition intervention program. This program provides nutrient-enriched food packs to ensure he gets the additional food he needs to regain normal weight and achieve optimum physical and mental development. Volunteers will monitor his progress, and professional staff will educate his parents about proper nutrition, sanitation, hygiene, and organic vegetable gardening.
The treatment will begin on February 22 and costs $184.
Marvin’s mother says, “I want him to be able to walk and go to school.”
