Angela received nutritional therapy to help her develop normally.

Her doctor reports, “Angela is doing really well. I’m looking at her growth curve right now, and both her weight and height have increased remarkably. With access to milk formula, she is eating really well and her energy has improved a lot. We’ll continue to follow her and supplement through the first year of life, but this treatment will guarantee that she has the opportunity to develop and grow healthily and reach her brain potential.”

Angela’s mother adds, “I am very thankful for all the help she has received and there has been a major difference in my baby’s health. Angela will have a better future.”

Meet Angela! This newborn baby girl and her twin brother were born in Guatemala. Angela and her brother were born several months early and spent their first few months in intensive care at a local hospital.

Angela’s time away from her mother prevented the development of a breastfeeding routine, and Angela’s health has suffered as result. Angela is only able to eat dilute cereal and sugared water, an unhealthy diet which has caused her to be underweight and developmentally delayed. The financial burden of feeding two babies lead Angela’s father to abandon the family leaving her mother to care for the young twins on her own.

Angela’s mother tells the staff at Wuqu’ Kawoq she “feels all alone, and not sure where to turn to.” Fortunately, Wuqu’ Kawoq has a program especially for children like Angela, and for $1,220 we can make sure Angela can afford the nutritional therapy she needs to get back on track with her development.
