Meet Alesandro! He is a one-year-old boy living in Guatemala with his family. “Alesandro is a classic case of stunting, or chronic malnutrition,” our medical partner in Guatemala shares. “If we don’t intervene, this chronic lack of a high quality diet will have a permanent impact on his brain and cognitive function.”
“This is a tough social situation,” Alesandro’s doctors write. “Alesandro’s mom is raising five young children all by herself. She’s had to move back in with her own mom, and the two of them are trying to keep the family together. All that she can afford to give Alesandro to eat is a thin porridge several times a day.”
They continue, “Alesandro’s mom has heard great things about what we are able to do in our nutritional rehabilitation program. She wants her child ‘to be normal and grow well, to have a future.’”
