Jan is an 18 month old baby boy from the Philippines. Jan loves to draw. His parents have 7 other kids as well. The family lives in a house by the road made of bamboo. They don’t have electricity and they get water from a water pump. Jan’s father is a carpenter.

Jan has severe acute malnutrition, which is associated with nearly half of all deaths in young children. In the remote communities and urban slums of the Philippines, lack of clean water and clean environments add risk to potentially fatal childhood diseases.

With $268, ICM’s Home-Based Feeding program will provide Jan with nutrient enriched food packs to ensure he can regain normal weight, and achieve optimum physical and mental development. Staff and community volunteers will make weekly visits to monitor his progress. To sustain his health in the long term, ICM’s professional staff will educate his mother, guardian or other family members about proper nutrition, sanitation, hygiene and organic vegetable gardening.

Jan’s mother shares, “I hope my son will finish his studies and find a good job someday.”

Elibariki

Elibariki is a playful and friends 10-year-old boy. He is the third born child in a family of five children. Elibariki has not started school yet because his parents shared that he cannot walk for a long distance due to his foot. The only school in their village is a long-distance walk for Elibariki and too far for him to manage. Elibariki’s parents are small-scale farmers who depend entirely on their harvest for their food and sell a few of the harvest to get money for other commodities. Elibariki was involved in a fire accident when he was three years old. At home, they have an open fireplace outside their house that serves as a cooking area. His mother had prepared breakfast that morning and there were still a few charcoals burning below the hot ashes. Elibariki and his siblings were playing around the fireplace when Elibariki accidentally stepped into the fire with his left foot. Access to medical care was out of reach for their family, so his parents treated him using herbal medicines. Now he is having difficulty walking. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Elibariki receive treatment. On March 15th, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery and he will be able to walk much better and without pain and discomfort. Now, their family needs help to fund this $639 procedure. Elibariki’s father says, “We always hoped one day we would find the money to take him to a hospital.”
