Claudia received malnutrition treatment.

Claudia has been growing like a normal, healthy baby since she has begun to receive formula as a part of her treatment for lactation failure. According to Claudia’s mother, Claudia is an active, smiley little girl, and she likes to play with her older siblings. With continued treatment, we are confident that Claudia will continue to grow and thrive.

Claudia’s mother says, “Thanks to God and you all for your help, my daughter is no longer sick and I am seeing her grow well. My desire is that when she grows up she can study and graduate to become a teacher or nurse.”

Claudia is a friendly two-month-old baby girl from Guatemala. She lives with her parents and siblings. Her mother takes care of the household, and her father supports their family as an agricultural day laborer.

Claudia has been diagnosed with malnutrition. Her mother is unable to produce breastmilk, a condition known as lactational failure. To stabilize her condition, Claudia was given a preliminary supply of formula, but will need more to grow healthily.

Beginning on March 23, Claudia will receive nutritional supplements at our medical partner’s care center, Clinic Miller. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is asking for $1,162 to cover the cost of Claudia’s nutritional supplements. Funds will also go towards an educational program that will teach Claudia’s mother how to create a nutrient-rich diet for her using limited resources.

“I want my daughter to grow healthy and be big so that she will be able to study and graduate,” says Claudia’s mother.
