Every child deserves a healthy future. But for children like 6-year-old Irma living in extreme poverty, the future remains uncertain.
Irma lives with her family in Guatemala, a country with one of the highest rates of chronic malnutrition in the world. She was so malnourished that she weighed only 13 pounds upon admittance to a local nutrition center. Additionally, she was suffering with severe anemia, an intestinal infection, and stunted growth, all due to extreme malnourishment.
Proper nutrition and medicine are necessities for children like Irma, allowing them to indulge in the simple joys of childhood and grow up healthy. With the support, recovery is no longer out of reach.
Your loving gift to Food For The Poor provides Irma, and children like her, with food and lifesaving medicine.
