Meet Nathaniel, a young boy from the province of South Cotabato in the Philippines. Like most young boys, Nathaniel loves to play with other children in his neighborhood.
Nathaniel has been diagnosed with malnutrition. This means that his body does not have enough energy and nutrients for growth and maintenance.
However, the good news is that malnutrition is very treatable. Nathaniel will begin a treatment program on February 20. He will be given nutrient-rich food packs, and his weight gain and growth will be monitored every week.
Our medical partner, International Care Ministries (ICM), will also assist his parents in preparing nutritious meals for their son. $184 will help Nathaniel recover from malnutrition.
Nathaniel’s family says that they hope he recovers and that “he grows up strong and healthy.”
