Erwin is a four-year-old boy who lives with his grandmother in the Philippines.
Erwin was recently diagnosed with malnutrition, a condition that results from consuming too few calories, proteins, and nutrients. Beginning on June 30, Erwin will receive at-home malnutrition treatment through our medical partner, International Care Ministries (ICM).
ICM will provide Erwin with nutrient enriched food packs to help him gain weight and achieve optimum physical and mental development. The program will also teach his grandmother about proper nutrition, sanitation, and organic gardening to better care for her grandson. ICM is requesting $173 to cover the cost of Erwin’s ongoing care.
“I hope that he will grow up well and someday become a teacher,” his grandmother says.
