If the children in their early life do not receive adequate nutrients for their development, in the future can present problems in several areas, at the stomach, in the developing of theire brain and also with his protein system.

According to the report our nutritionist do every month, the results observed shows, 56.1% of children under 1 year have adequatenutritional status; 7.3% of children have low height for age, which shows an intrauterine growth retardation or are those children with a history of prematurity whose prognosis for recovery can begiven only in the long term taking all condition requiring medical care.

The 34.1% of children are underweight for their age, this is because children also have intrauterine growth retardation and preterm low birth weight also,coupled with this common colds (pathology in this population increased incidence), often accompanied by loss of appetite causing stagnation loss or weight, however, this condition is retrieved inthe short term.

The 2.4% of children are overweight because they have increased intake of formula, hasbeen doing work with surrogate mothers to indicate the appropriate options supply inquantity and quality of the formulas.

It is important to note that over 50% of the population has adequate nutritional status which is always kept none of the children admitted with adequate nutritional states,  have submitted malnutrition in any degree of severity.

Thanks to you, we could strengthen the care and nutritional intervention project, to ensure the best nutritional conditions and monitoring children’s health; with the assurance of a positive impact in their future development capabilities.

Once again thank you very much to our friends who support children in CRAN Foundation. Is very important for us to have such generous people like you supporting the cause. This is the story of Wendy, one of the beneficiaries of the project:

Wendy is 3 years old, she was born with an umbilical hernia, she always said she was very painful and complained a lot of a severe stomachache. Thanks to YOUR SUPPORT Wendy´s surgery was performed and was a success. At first she was nervous, but after the recovery she was so much happier, cheerful and released from the severe pain he suffered for so long. Besides the stomach problem, Wendy also suffers of equine foot, she used her splints however, by the use, they were often damaged; by orthopedic orders she has another surgery, so she could walk properly. At the beginning of the therapies she felt very uncomfortable, but over time she realized I could walk much better and was very satisfactory for her.  

On behalf of CRAN children we want to thank you for your unconditional support through these past months.

Thank you for still CRANsforming lives!

First of all, thank you very much to all the support to CRAN to overcome the challenge, thanks to the unconditional support, our project was ranked 36 (in a ranking of 229) now we become a part of the Global Giving community!

With your support, we could continue working for the improvement of the health of Colombian children in CRAN. During December 2012 and January 2013, over 300 children were benefited in more than medical appointments, specialized exams, occupational therapy and medication. 

 One of the project beneficiary is Cristina and here is her story: 

 Cristina is three years old, she is with us since 2012. She joined CRAN for negligence in her care. Due to a congenital problem in her limbs, she walked with difficulty. To correct this dysfunction, on January 23 she had a surgery called elongation bilateral Achilles heel. For two or three months, Cristina will be cast. With exercises and therapies she will walk normally and can run and play with other children. Thanks to your support on the GlobalGiving project, we could cover all expenses, medicines and hire someone to take care Cristina permanently during recovery.

In January, two other children, Peter of three years old, and Maria, also of three years, were operated and successfully evolve.

This is one of many stories of children who have been benefited from your contribution. Once again, thank you very much for CRANsform lives!
