Sygie is a 19-month-old baby girl from the Philippines. Her mother works as a laundress while her father works as a farmer and laborer.
Sygie’s family has not been able to provide nutritious food for her, and sometimes they are unable to buy milk for her to drink. Because of this, Sygie is very thin and malnourished.
The $173 requested by our medical partner, International Care Ministries, for Sygie’s treatment will cover enrollment in a malnutrition treatment program and associated costs, including medication, supplies, and nutritionist supervision. Sygie is scheduled to begin her treatment on June 26.
“I hope that my daughter will gain weight, recover from malnutrition, and be more active and playful,” says Sygie’s mother.
