#3039 Damaris Aracel Yacabalquiej Sacalxot
Damaris is one year old and severely malnourished. She entered into our Chubby Cherubs program of nutritional cookies to help her gain weight, but she really needs the help of a sponsor to buy her powdered milk to drink. She has an older brother who is 7 and an older sister who is 3. Damaris and her siblings live with their mother and 5 relatives of their mother in a one room cement house with a tin roof and a dirt floor. Virginia doesn’t work and depends on financial help from one of her brothers to support her three children. The family usually eats tortillas for three meals a day with rice, beans, eggs or sometimes just salt.
