Meet baby Marisa from Guatemala. She’s two-months-old, the youngest of three children, and a welcome addition to her loving family.
Marisa was a premature baby, weighing only three pounds at birth. Her mother has not been able to produce milk for her and formula is prohibitively expensive for the family.
The family was referred to Watsi’s medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq’ (WK), which has worked with a number of other Watsi patients in Guatemala to tackle malnutrition. “I was really happy when I learned about your program, and I hope you can help my baby,” Marisa’s mother told the WK team.
Marisa is in good hands, and with our help, well on her way to good health, too. “With close nutritional followup and counseling, as well as the all important provision of the necessary milk formula, Marisa will gain weight, grow normally, and develop normally,” the WK team tells us.
$1220 will cover the cost of comprehensive and personalized care the WK team will provide Marisa. Let’s fund this little one’s care and get her on track for a healthy and productive life.
