Allison is an active 13-month-old girl from Guatemala. She is the first child in her family, and loves to eat eggs. Allison’s father supports the family working as a laborer in metal structures, and her mother takes care of the household.
Allison was recently diagnosed with malnutrition, a condition which results from consuming too little protein, calories, and nutrients. Beginning on June 26, Allison will undergo growth monitoring and receive nutritional supplements at Clinic Tecpán, our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is asking for $837 to cover the cost of her treatment. Funds will also go towards an educational program that will teach Allison’s parents how to use limited resources to create a nutrient-rich diet for their daughter.
Allison’s parents are grateful for all the support!
