Today I was privileged to learn about the difference between acute malnutrition and chronic malnutrition, which a large amount of the kids in Guatemala experience.
This means that the lack of knowledge, education, and financial means often leaves these children without proper nutritional needs to grow their bodies how they should be.... leaving them many times undersized, prone to infection, and sometimes neurologically affected.
The children of this country have so much beauty and love and potential to do amazing things in Guatemala and the world. They just need the chance to be KNOWN - educated, loved, cared for. It's amazing to watch how the small care of one person in the US who has so abundantly, can make such a difference to a child and her whole community and possibly entire country.
