Roger is a seven-year-old, thin boy living in a remote community in the Philippines. Roger, his parents, and five siblings live in a small handmade house, made of bamboo. His father works as utility personnel for a local news agency, but struggles to make enough income to provide for his family. Roger is suffering from malnutrition. He needs treatment to regain his health and strength, as well as prevent future complications.

Watsi medical partner International Care Ministries’ (ICM) Home-Based Feeding program will provide Roger with nutrient enriched food packs to ensure he gets additional food to regain normal weight, and achieve optimum physical and mental development. Staff and community volunteers will make weekly visits to monitor Rogers progress. To help sustain his health, ICM’s professional staff will educate his parents about proper nutrition, sanitation, hygiene and organic vegetable gardening.

$268 will cover the costs of the care Roger needs. Let’s help raise the funds!

Roger’s mother says, “I hope my son will finish schooling someday.”
