NUTRITION FOR EDMAR
I have been seeing a mother and son attending our church for almost a year now. The mother, a tall lean woman in her forties, often just sat herself down during worship services, cuddling her 4 year old son. The boy himself, is Edmar. He preferred just cuddling too, instead of running about. For his age, Edmar is severely malnourished, with contracted arms and legs and is unable to move on his own. All of these ensued after miraculously surviving Tuberculous Meningitis, a disease that has claimed the lives of many Filipino children. Pastor Jeffrey Datangel, a Pediatric Physical Therapist, saw this need and has been giving free physical therapy on a regular basis. As much as we can see a big improvement, however, his nutritional needs still remain to be a big issue. Due to his limitations in properly chewing and digesting, Edmar needs to be given a high calorie milk formula Pediasure and food supplement Dibencozide to meet his daily caloric requirements. Both will boost Edmar’s nutritional needs and immune system, on top of his usual diet of mashed rice, potatoes and soup. A monthly support of $96.50 would greatly make a difference in his life as well as his family. We believe that touching them in a more tangible way would convince them that God is willing and able to be Jehovah Jireh in their lives. His name be praised!
