This past March we welcomed three year old twin boys Jeferson and Yeison to our children’s village. The boys were found by a medical brigade last November and were so malnourished and sick they were hospitalized for a month.
Due to their malnutrition they were very small for their age, and suffered some developmental delays. They were the size of a one year old, and were not yet walking or talking, even though they were three years old.
Twins Jeferson and Yeison, were severely malnourished when they arrived at our project in March, 2014. Though they were 3 years old, they couldn’t walk or talk, and were the same size as Enoc, age 20 months in this photo (Top). Look at the difference Donors like you make! Thanks to sponsorship, In just a few short months of healthy eating, care and love, they are thriving, as seen in this photo below.
They have adapted to their new home and are doing so well, just a few months later! They are walking and talking and becoming more and more comfortable in their new home. We are so grateful to support from people like you who make it possible to care for children like Jeferson and Yeison.
Now, thanks to sponsors and supporters like you, the boys get healthy and nutritious meals, medical attention, and have even started pre-school. What a difference sponsorship makes!
Dr. McCallum, founder of FoHC , met these two young boys back in March when they first arrived. See them here in this video.
