Eva received successful malnutrition treatment.

Since beginning treatment for malnutrition, Eva has been gaining weight and growing taller. Eva is making improvements with her health. With continued treatment, we are confident that Eva will continue along this healthy trajectory.

Eva’s mother says, “I am content because I see that my daughter is eating better now. It has been difficult for her to gain weight but I hope that she betters soon.”

Eva is fourteen months old and has malnutrition, a dangerous condition that occurs when the body doesn’t get enough nutrients. In the short term, malnutrition means Eva has little energy to grow, and her immune system is weak. If Eva does not receive treatment, she will also face malnutrition’s long-term consequences, including increased risk of chronic diseases, delays in cognitive development, and irreversible stunted growth. Fortunately, malnutrition is very treatable.

Eva lives in rural Guatemala with her parents and five older siblings. She is shy with new people, but her family reports that once she knows a person, she is smiley and warm. Eva likes to plays cars with her older sister, and when she hears music on the radio, she tries to dance. Her favorite foods are eggs and watermelon.

The family wants the best for baby Eva, but their limited resources are already stretched thin. Her father works in agriculture in the countryside, and her mother takes care of the household. Eva will begin treatment on January 19, and the family needs help to raise $437.

With growth monitoring, micronutrients, and food supplementation, Eva’s treatment will give her a chance to grow healthily. This life-changing treatment will give Eva the opportunity to play and grow, supported by a healthy brain and body.
