Christelyn is a seven-year-old student from the Philippines. She is extremely playful and active, and loves to play games with her friends and neighbors.
Christelyn was recently diagnosed with malnutrition, a condition that results from consuming too few calories, proteins, and nutrients. Beginning on June 30, Christelyn will receive at-home malnutrition treatment through our medical partner, International Care Ministries (ICM).
ICM will provide Christelyn with nutrient enriched food packs to help her gain weight and achieve optimum physical and mental development. The program will also teach her family about proper nutrition, sanitation, and organic gardening to better care for their daughter. ICM is requesting $173 to cover the cost of Christelyn’s ongoing care.
Christelyn’s mother says, “We pray that our child can fully recover from malnutrition so that she can complete her education and find a good job.”
