Diego underwent malnutrition treatment.

Since beginning treatment for malnutrition, Diego has been gaining weight and growing taller. Before starting in the program, Diego often fell ill with diarrhea and fever, but he has not gotten sick since starting treatment. With continued treatment, we are confident that Diego will continue along this healthy trajectory.

Diego’s mother says, “I am grateful for the help you are bringing to my son. I can see how much it is helping with his growth, and I am learning a great deal.”

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!
