Eugene is a ten-month-old boy from the Philippines. An only child, he lives with his parents in a bamboo house.
Weak and susceptible to illness, Eugene has been diagnosed with severe acute malnutrition. His mother is concerned for his health, but she looks forward to his recovery and hopes that her son will someday become a teacher.
Our medical partner, International Care Ministries, is requesting $268 to cover the cost of an in-home feeding program to treat Eugene’s malnutrition. This will pay for nutrient-enriched food packs, weekly visits from medical staff, and health education for family members. Eugene is scheduled to begin treatment on February 23.
