Healthy babies in Nueva Esperanza 

The proof is in the pudge – Carlito is one of more than 50 healthy children in Nueva Esperanza, where your support has eradicated child malnutrition.

When Carlito was born, his mother Yaris knew breastfeeding was crucial to ensure healthy development. But her milk made him sick. Agros staff helped Yaris identify that Carlito was allergic to breast milk and taught her how to use a powder to make soy milk instead. It worked. Carlito’s chubby cheeks are evidence of Nueva Esperanza’s 0% rate of child malnutrition – the result of a holistic program of maternity support, child weighings, nutrition training, and help accessing resources like powdered soy milk for Carlito.

“We didn’t have the opportunity to grow up in a good environment, to study or to have nice things,” remembers Carlos, Carlito’s father. “Our dream is to give these things to our children.”
