Charlin is a two-year-old girl from Philippines. She lives with her parents, who both work as farmers.
Charlin was diagnosed with moderately acute malnutrition, a condition in which she does not receive the proper nutrients needed to sustain a healthy, growing body. Beginning on February 22, Charlin will receive at-home treatment from our medical partner, International Care Ministries (ICM).
ICM’s home-based feeding program will provide Charlin with nutrient-enriched food packs to ensure she regains normal weight and achieves optimum physical and mental development. To help sustain Charlin’s health, ICM’s professional staff will educate her mother on proper nutrition, sanitation, hygiene, and organic vegetable gardening.
Our medical partner is asking for $184 in funds to cover Charlin’s treatment.
“I hope my daughter will grow up healthy…and will recover from malnutrition,” says Charlin’s mother.
