Meet Medgine, a sweet little 10 month old. She was just admitted to the Rescue Center at Real Hope for Haiti.  

She is suffering from malnutrition and edema, and has been refusing to eat. Her mother said she began losing her appetite about three months ago, and also frequently had a fever. Medgine’s grandmother thought it was just teething. No one else at home was sick, and she hasn’t had diarrhea or a cough. She was breastfed for her first three months of life, but then was switched to flour water. Her Mom hadn’t taken Medgine to a clinic sooner, because she hasn’t had any money for food or medical care. Medgine and her mother live with her grandmother, her mother’s two siblings, and perhaps other people. Her father is not involved in her care.

With this microproject fully funded, we've ordered 100 Little Green Diapers. These diapers will help Medgine stay clean, dry, and healthy as she recovers. 

Thank you for all you do to help Medgine.
