June 8, 2017

Eni is a 14-month-old baby boy from the rural highlands of Guatemala. He enjoys eating melons and playing with his toy car.

Eni is experiencing symptoms of malnutrition, a dangerous condition that results from consuming too few calories and nutrients. In the short term, this means that Eni has little energy to grow, and he also gets sick more often than other children. For example, not too recently, Eni was hospitalized for pneumonia. 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 Eni. On June 22, Eni will begin routine growth monitoring and nutrient supplementation. Local health workers will also teach Eni’s parents about nutrition. These interventions will ensure Eni grows up strong and healthy.

Eni’s mother says, “Thank you to the donors and to the institution for taking us into account. With the help from the program I will be able to feed my son better and in the classes I will learn a great deal and gain new knowledge.”
