Elisa underwent malnutrition treatment.

Since beginning treatment for malnutrition, Elisa has been gaining weight and growing taller. Elisa’s mother says now she is able to feed her daughter better than before, and that Elisa has not fallen ill as she had been. Elisa’s mother has seen changes in her development, for Elisa is starting to take her first steps, and she is a more smiley and animated child. With continued treatment, we are confident that Elisa will continue to grow and thrive.

Elisa’s mother says, “I am very happy and grateful for all the support that we are receiving.”

Elisa is a seven-month-old baby girl from Guatemala. She is a lively child who loves to play with her stuffed bear and eat bananas. Elisa has been diagnosed with malnutrition, a condition that results from consuming too little protein, calories, and nutrients.

On May 25, Elisa will begin growth monitoring and nutritional supplementation at Clinic Tecpán, our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is asking for $492 to cover the cost of Elisa’s food supplementation, as well as an educational program that will teach her mother how to create a nutrient-rich diet for Elisa using limited resources.

“We are grateful for the support our daughter will receive,” say Elisa’s parents. “We hope that through the program she can recover from malnutrition.”
