Orelus’ beginning weight: 16.5 lbs

Two years ago, 17-year-old Davilmar became pregnant with her boyfriend of the same age. Neither Davilmar nor her boyfriend were employed, had very little income, and both their families abandoned them because of the pregnancy.

On December 1, 2014, Orelus came into the world. Since his birth, he has become ill multiple times, most often with diarrhea, respiratory infections, and skin infections. Davilmar does what she can, but her reality is a life in poverty. So she reached out for help.

After only 5 weeks in the program, Orelus now weighs over 20 pounds and continues to grow. He has an improved immune system to fight infections. Most importantly, he has the energy to laugh and play now!

After 5 weeks of Medika Mamba, Orelus weighs 20 lbs - and counting!

Davilmar continues to strive to be the best mother she can be, and attends the program every week with Orelus, until he achieves a normal level of growth and development. Your support saves lives!
