Jaiman is a three-year-old boy from the Philippines. He lives in a bamboo hut with his grandmother and loves playing with his twin brother.
Jaiman has been diagnosed with acute malnutrition. He has thin arms and legs and a bloated stomach. His grandmother wants him to be healthy and to be able to attend school in the future.
Our medical partner, International Care Ministries, is requesting $184 to cover the cost of an in-home feeding program to treat Jaiman’s malnutrition. This will pay for nutrient-enriched food packs, weekly visits from medical staff, and health education for family members. Jaiman is scheduled to begin treatment on February 16. After treatment, he will return to playing with his brother.
