Melany is a two-year-old girl from Guatemala. She previously received Watsi funding for malnutrition treatment. Although her growth has improved, she has been facing frequent asthma attacks for about two months, along with a recurrent cough. She does not like to play because she is scared she will have an asthma attack. Recently, she has been coughing so much that she is unable to sleep, making her tired and irritable during the day. Fortunately, Melany began asthma treatment on January 2.
Melany lives with her family in a home made of tin and wood. She loves to run, play, and laugh with her two siblings. Her father works as a day laborer in a local plantation. He has difficulty buying basics, such as food and clothes for the family. He needs help to fund this $422 procedure.
This treatment will provide Melany with continued medical care and six months of intense treatment for her acute asthma. It will allow her to run and play, sleep better, and live healthily.
Melany’s mother says, “I appreciate the help that you will give my daughter because it has been making me very worried. My hope is to see her grow into a young woman who studies and one day will become a teacher.”
