We’re so honored to be a member of Watsi’s Universal Fund, helping patients across the world to receive the medical treatments they desperately need through our monthly donations. It’s simple–we enjoy helping people, whether through language support or meeting medical needs. Recently LSA’s donation went to Genesis–a 1-year-old girl from Guatemala–who will undergo treatment for acute pediatric malnutrition over a 3-month period. Learn more about Genesis’ story below.

A wildflower lover, Genesis was not meeting developmental milestones due to her acute malnutrition.  Genesis’ immune system and energy levels would also be affected if left untreated. Her scheduled treatment will gradually introduce essential nutrients into her diet and provide her with de-worming to increase her caloric intake, Watsi’s medical partner Wuqu’ Kawoq (WK) reports.

Genesis’ mother expressed her happiness that treatment can now take place: “I want to see her run around the house again, and have the energy to play with her toys. I love her so much.”

We’re excited to have helped Genesis receive this medical treatment! Are you interested in helping patients through Watsi’s Universal Fund? Visit Watsi.org to learn how the fund works and meet the patients across the world that need your help!

“We believe everyone deserves healthcare, and we’re making that a reality, one patient at a time.”
