Juan and Juan are 4-year-old gemelos (“twins” in Spanish) from a rural community in Guatemala where Wuqu’ Kawok runs a nutrition program. According to Dr. Rohloff, the two boys suffer from “one of the worst cases of chronic malnutrition we [Wuqu’ Kawok] have ever seen, which was brought on by extreme poverty, frequent infections and lack of access to food.”
Wuqu’ Kawok’s staff have been treating Juan and Juan in their home for several months now, but in collaboration with their parents and local health workers, have concluded that the boys need to be hospitalized for approximately five weeks in order to fully recover.
Juan and Juan love to spend time together exploring the outdoors. Let’s help their family pay for their five week hospitalization to health so they are able to continue their adventures!
