“Estela’s mom tells us that she wants ‘Estela to grow as well as my other children did,’“Wuqu’ Kawoq (WK) tells about this sweet baby girl and youngest of eight who lives with her family in Guatemala. “She is hopeful that we will be able to help turn things around, and she’s looking forward to seeing her child smile and play again.”
“Estela is very small,” Wuqu’ Kawoq (WK) writes. “She has suffered from a series of recent illnesses, and she has lost weight with each one. As a result, her height curve has also recently lagged, and her development is falling behind. To her mother, she appears more lethargic and inactive than her previous children were at this stage of their lives.”
For $535 doctors can treat Estela for acute malnutrition. “With treatment, Estela will have resumed growth and development, improved dietary quality, and preserved brain and cognitive potential,” WK explains.
Let’s get Estela off to a great start in life!
