Selvin Caal was born in Chisec Alta Verapaz. He is now 6 years old and a happy, energetic and amazing boy.
He was born with a cleft lip and palate which caused him a lot of nutritional and health problems. When we found him at one of our Mobile Medical Missions he was 1 month old and weighted 5 pounds. We added him to our nutritional program and in 3 months he was healthy and ready for his first surgery. We first repaired his lip and, one year later after continuing the nutritional program, we repaired his palate.
With a perfect speech today, he is in first grade in school and top of his class.
He visited us along with Carmen, his mother, to say thank you for everything that we did for him. He is one of the many reasons we continue our work in Guatemala.
