Carlos is a one-month-old baby boy from Guatemala. His lives with his parents and eight older siblings. His father works as a day laborer, and his mother is a homemaker.
Carlos is experiencing lactational failure. He does not receive proper nutrients due to his mother’s inability to produce sufficient breast milk. To stabilize his condition, Carlos was given a preliminary supply of formula, but his parents cannot afford to buy a continuous supply.
On February 16, Carlos will begin treatment at our medical partner’s care center, Clinic Miller. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is asking for $1,107 to cover the cost of Carlos’s nutritional supplements. Funds will also go toward a nutrition education program for his mother.
“I want to thank you for the help Carlos will receive,” says Carlos’s mother. “God bless you for what you do.”
