In the long term, the effects of severe acute malnutrition on children can be devastating. If they are not treated properly, they can even result in death. A special program, called Ponte Poronte, has been designed in collaboration with two partner organizations, Prepara Familia and Mapani, to treat acute malnutrition in children under 5, the most vulnerable of all. We identify, diagnose and treat malnourished children in the community, parents require therapeutic food for their children. At Ponte Poronte, we use therapeutic supplements, with vitamins and minerals, which do not require water or cooking, and can be eaten straight from the package to treat severely malnourished children. The treatment restores the children to health in a period of 6 to 8 weeks.
It is important that in the midst of the harsh situation they are going through, children and adolescents do not lose the excitement and deep joy of celebrating their birthday, and all the other holidays of the year. On the last Friday of each month, birthdays are celebrated on the 5th floor of the J.M. de los Ríos Hospital (the most important children's hospital in the country). A celebration is held where we invite the other services and a children's party is organized to commemorate the birthday boys of the month. If you are interested in sponsoring or contributing in any way to the next birthday, please contact us. Children's faces light up when they are greeted by singers, face painting, storytelling, or even Mickey Mouse.
