I am amazed by these 4 girls and how quickly they have changed in 4 weeks! Daphna (farthest on the left side) still has swelling in her feet. She will take several more weeks to fully recover. Thank you Meds and Food for Kids for making the wonderful product of medika mamba. Thank you World Wide Village for coming along beside us and taking on this fund-raising project for us. Thank you–Thank you so much to the Livesay Family for all the fund-raising and running you have done to save so many kids lives already. Tara and Brittany are running a 1/2 marathon soon and are raising funds to purchase more medika mamba. Help them reach their goal —read their post here or better yet donate here to save the lives of malnourished kids in Haiti.

She is 2 years old and weighs 20 pounds. She is an only child. She is suffering with kwashiorkor. She is currently on the Medika Mamba program.
DJOUVENS (anna you would love him 🙂 )
He is almost 2 years old and weighs 11 pounds. His dad died in an auto accident and his mom died in the earthquake. He has been passing around with different family member since his mother’s death. He is in bad shape and very small. Ameyah is 2 months old and weighs more than he does at 2 years old. He is currently on the medika mamba program.
She is 23 months old and weighs 15 pounds. She has 1 sibling that has already died and 3 that are living at home. Her dad stood at the gate and cried when he left her that day. She is currently on the medika mamba program.
This is her 2nd time being in the RC. She went home in Feb 2010. She is 2.5 years old and weighs 24 pounds. How much of that weight you do think is from the kwashiorkor. Her legs are splitting open from all the pressure and look at the area around her nose. She is so swollen and in a lot of pain. She is currently on the medika mamba program.
Dasme was in the RC for about 2 years. We were unable to locate his dad during that time. We were going to be placing him in a orphange the following week in Aug 2009. That same week his dad showed up. He has been living with an aunt since them. He went home at 34 pounds and is currently 28 pounds and has kwashiorkor. He will lose more weight before he begins to gain. I love this little guy so much. He is currently on the medika mamba program.
She is 13 months old and weighs 16 pounds. This is her first time with kwashiorkor. She is currently on the Medika Mamba program.
