This little guy is Gustavo. He’s a two-month-old baby from Guatemala who needs immediate nutritional rehabilitation to make it past his first few months of life and grow up healthy.
Gustavo’s mother is unable to produce breast milk, and despite his hard-working family’s efforts to put all their available income towards infant formula, they cannot afford all the formula Gustavo needs to start his life healthy. As a result, Gustavo is extremely underweight and malnourished.
Gustavo’s family needs $525 to pay for the nutritional treatment, which will provide critical nutrients and allow him to gain and maintain a healthy weight.
