$45 provides a malnourished child with milk, vitamins, medical testing and treatment for a month to combat negative long-term effects of infant malnourishment. Newborn babies are among the most vulnerable to malnutrition. Not only does your gift improve the survival rate of newborns, but it also improves their quality of life as they grow up. Malnourishment immediately leads to an increased susceptibility to illness and a slower recovery process. It also prevents children from growing to their optimum size as adults (limiting the work they are able to perform) and prevents their brains from developing fully. One month of treatment can change one child's life path, placing them on a trajectory out of poverty.
