Kenedy is a toddler from Guatemala. He lives with his parents and sister. He enjoys playing with his sister and is learning how to walk without any help!
Kenedy was recently diagnosed with acute malnutrition, a kind of malnutrition characterized by a weight that is dangerously low for a person’s height. Previously, he had been treated for chronic malnutrition, characterized by stunted growth.
On February 13, Kennedy will begin treatment at our medical partner’s care center, Clinic Miller. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is asking for $782 to cover the cost of Kenedy’s nutritional supplements. Funds will also go toward educating his mother on how to create a hearty diet for him.
“I want to express my gratitude for the support my son has received from you all. God bless you,” says Kenedy’s mother. “My desire has always been to see him improve and grow each day.”
