Elias received intensive nutritional therapy to overcome malnutrition.

Elias’s big smile, gleam in his eyes, and ruddiness in his cheeks show the amazing results of treatment. In addition, there has been a great increase in both his height and weight. Our medical partners report that they “are very happy with progress so far!” Thank you for helping get Elias’s growth back on track so he will develop normally!

Elias’s mom is very happy with the change in energy and appetite. She is grateful to the attentive field team for the help and moral support, and to the donors from Watsi for caring about children far away!

This little boy is Elias, a two-year-old from Guatemala who is lethargic, beginning to lose weight, and is not growing at the rate he should be.

Elias is his mom’s first and only child. Despite his parents’ best efforts, food is scarce and the family has been hard pressed to afford the necessary nutrition for Elias to grow up healthy.

Elias’ family needs $525 for intensive nutritional therapy. The money will also cover nutritional counseling for his mom, so she will be empowered to make the best of the food resources she has. With your support, we can help Elias and any future siblings to grow up healthy and strong!
