Glendy received nutrition supplements to treat her stunting and malnutrition.

“Glendy is doing great,” her doctors at our medical partner in Guatemala write. “She is not our biggest fan, since her workup and treatment did involve a blood sample, so all of her photos are a bit tearful. We worked to take the best one we could, and we do think that her beautiful personality comes through, even though there is just a hint of tears and annoyance. Glendy’s growth curves have improved really nicely over the last several visits, and she is more energetic, interactive, and playful according to her parents. They are very grateful for the support.”

Glendy is a toddler who lives in Guatemala with her family. She is the third of four children and, while born healthy, has not exhibited developmental growth after her first year of life. She has what is called stunting, the most common form of child malnutrition in the world.

“She was a normal baby until about one year of age, and then financial pressures in the family started to take their toll,” writes our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq (WK), about Glendy. “In particular, a younger baby was born, and Glendy had less access to foods, mom’s milk, and so forth. She is frequently and chronically ill with diarrhea. Her diet is poor, especially lacking in vitamins and protein. She has limited energy and very delayed language.”

But treatment for Glendy’s stunting, especially the personalized treatment like the WK team has been able to give other children, will help to get her back on track.

With $535, we can curb the diarrhea Glendy has been having, improve her appetite and energy, and help her get over this developmental slump. Glendy’s mom is especially optimistic. “She’s seen the positive results from other children in the community we’ve treated and has high hopes,” writes the WK team. Watsi donors, let’s make it happen.
