Gerly is a 16-month-old girl from who lives with her family in her grandparent’s home and loves to play with other kids.

Gerly has been diagnosed with severe acute malnutrition. Her mother enrolled her in International Care Ministries (ICM)’s home-based feeding program in hopes it will help her daughter reach a normal weight. “I hope she recovers from malnutrition and to go to school someday,” her mother said.

One out of five children under five in the communities ICM serves is either severely or moderately acutely malnourished. Worldwide, poor nutrition is associated with nearly half of all deaths in young children. In remote communities and urban slums of the Philippines, the lack of clean water and unclean environments add risk to potentially fatal childhood diseases.

Gerly was scheduled to begin treatment for malnutrition on October 19th, 2016. As part of her treatment, she will receive nutrient enriched food packs to ensure she gets additional food to regain normal weight, and achieve optimum physical and mental development. ICM’s staff and community volunteers will make weekly visits to monitor her progress. And to help sustain her health, ICM’s professional staff will educate her family about proper nutrition, sanitation, hygiene, and organic vegetable gardening.
