NAME: ALFONSO SUHUL CHAJIL
DOB: OCTOBER 17, 2011
Alfonso is almost four years old but is severely underweight for his age and cannot walk or talk. He has two older sisters (twins), one older brother and one younger brother. Alfonso and his siblings live with their parents in a one room house made out of wooden boards with a tin roof and a cement floor. They have electricity, but no running water. His father works as a day laborer but he only gets paid about $25 each week which isn’t nearly enough to provide for the family of seven. Alfonso’s twin sisters are eight years old, but are not studying in school due to the family’s lack of economic resources. Alfonso needs nutritional help as well as physical and speech therapies.
