Diego is a six-month-old baby boy from Guatemala. He is his parents’ second child. Diego’s mother takes care of the family’s household, and his father works as a tailor. Diego was recently diagnosed with malnutrition, a condition that results from consuming too little protein, calories, and nutrients.
On June 9, Diego will begin growth monitoring at Clinic Panajachel, our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is asking for $492 to cover the cost of Diego’s micronutrients and food supplementation. Funds will also go towards an educational program that will teach Diego’s mother how to create nutrient-rich diets for him using limited resources.
Diego’s parents are very grateful for all the donors’ support!
