Sheily received intensive nutritional support.

“Sheily is doing amazingly well,” reports her doctor at Wuqu’ Kawoq. “We’ve been providing milk supplementation and educational support to her adoptive parents. She is getting chubby, and has regained all the ground that she lost initially. This support means that she will grow up with the best possible chance to succeed in life.”

“I am so excited by the arrival of the new baby,” Sheily’s new adoptive mom tells our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq. “We had the opportunity to sit down with her last week and watch her amazing interactions with Sheily.”

This little one is Sheily, a one-month-old baby girl from Guatemala! Sheily’s birth mom was unable to care for her so a kind neighbor quickly adopted her. This means there is no maternal milk available, and her adoptive mom, while extremely excited and loving, does not have the money needed to purchase milk formula. As a result of the lack of maternal milk, Sheily is not gaining weight and is in danger of malnutrition.

Sheily will need milk supplementation for the first year of life. “We’ll also provide ongoing growth, monitoring, and nutritional education and support to Sheily’s mom,” explain doctors at Wuqu’ Kawoq. Let’s raise $1,220 and get Sheily off to a great start to her life!
