Jeimy received successful malnutrition treatment.

Since beginning treatment for malnutrition, Jeimy has been gaining weight and growing taller. Nowadays Jeimy is very active. She loves to get into mischief while playing with her older siblings, and she loves to be tickled. She has not fallen ill since starting in the program either. With continued treatment, we are confident that Jeimy will continue along this healthy trajectory.

Jeimy’s mother says, “I am happy because my daughter is not sick anymore, and she’s very playful now. I wish to thank you for the support that we have received, because little by little my daughter is recovering. Though she still has a ways to go I have hope that she will continue recovering. May God bless you for all that you do.”

Jeimy is an 18-month-old toddler who loves to play. She has one older brother and will soon be a big sister, as her mother is having another baby. Her mother takes care of household chores, and her father works on a farm to support the family.

Jeimy is experiencing symptoms of malnutrition, a dangerous condition that results from consuming too few calories and nutrients. In the short term, this means that Jeimy has little energy to grow, and she also gets sick more often than other children. The long-term consequences of malnutrition include increased risk of chronic diseases and delayed development.

While malnutrition can have devastating effects, it is also very treatable. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is asking for $492 to fund treatment for Jeimy. On April 3, Jeimy will begin routine growth monitoring and nutrient supplementation. Local health workers will also teach Jeimy’s parents about nutrition. These interventions will ensure Jeimy grows up strong and healthy.

Jeimy’s mother says, “I want to thank you for the help my daughter is going to receive from you all so that she can get better, and also so that I can see her grow, so she can study and be a great person.”
