Andrés underwent malnutrition treatment.

Since beginning treatment for malnutrition, Andres has been gaining weight and growing taller. Before starting in the program, Andres fell sick often, which his mother worried about because she did not have the resources to buy him medication. Now, however, Andres is healthier and happier—he loves to play with his sister and get tickled, and he is very active and already wants to walk on his own. With continued treatment, we are confident that Andres will continue to grow and thrive.

Andres’s mother says, “Thank you for the help my son is receiving. May God bless you for all that you do. I see my son better every day.”

Andrés is an active and happy 13-month-old baby boy from Guatemala. He loves to play with his sisters and sing and clap. Andrés’s mother takes care of the family’s household, and his father works as a construction laborer. Andrés was recently diagnosed with malnutrition, a condition that results from consuming too little protein, calories, and nutrients.

On June 12, Andrés will begin growth monitoring at Clinic Miller, our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is asking for $492 to cover the cost of Andrés’s micronutrients and food supplementation. Funds will also go towards an educational program that will teach Andrés’s mother how to create nutrient-rich diets for him using limited resources.

“Thank you for supporting my son,” says Andrés’s mother.
