Food for a Malnourished Child

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, 12-year-old Jimena was underweight and suffered from intestinal parasites. The Compassion center where she is registered in El Salvador gave her treatment. But when her mother lost her job due to the pandemic, affording food became a problem. “Wondering how to buy groceries for my family worried me. I prayed to the Lord to let us lack everything except food, because Jimena needs to eat,” says her mother, Claudia. Thanks to the support of friends like you, Claudia’s prayer was answered when Compassion began providing vulnerable families with food kits. “The chicken, meat, juice and yogurt are special for us. We are not used to buying it, because it is expensive. I couldn’t have bought it on my own,” she says. Jimena also continues to receive vitamins and nutrients to help her reach a healthy weight. “I’m thankful to my center,” Jimena says. “With their help, I gained weight, and we have food at home. I can do my homework, and they take care of me.” Thank you for helping ensure malnourished children like Jimena have enough food to restore their health!
