Two-year-old Janbern lives in the Philippines with her parents and five siblings. They live in a house made of bamboo with a roof made of galvanized iron. Janbern is an active little girl who loves to play with her siblings.
Unfortunately, Janbern’s parents cannot afford to give her the diet she needs to stay healthy. As a result, Janbern is severely malnourished. She requires immediate treatment to prevent delays in her mental and physical development.
Janbern began $268 malnutrition treatment on October 19. She is being treated by International Care Ministries (ICM), a Watsi medical partner. ICM will supply Janbern with nutrient-enriched food packs to help her reach a normal weight for her age. The nourishment will also ensure that she achieves optimum physical and mental development.
Janbern will receive weekly visits from ICM staff and community volunteers to check up on her progress in the program. Additionally, staff will educate her parents about ways to sustain her health in the future.
Janbern’s mother hopes that her daughter will finish school and have a job one day. Let’s help fund this important treatment program!
