DOB: June 5, 2013
Hometown: Desierto, Guatemala
This little boy was born two days ago in his home in Desierto. His mother is seventeen years old. She has one older daughter who is two years old and she had another child that passed away a year ago. The father recently abandoned his wife and children. His grandmother and a neighbor brought him into the clinic. They have been giving him boiled water in an eye dropper because they can’t afford to buy formula. Family members told the mother to give him away because he isn’t going to live past four days. We have started him on formula as an emergency child. This baby is in need of two sponsors to help buy him formula and get surgery in the future to fix his lip and palate.
