Baby bottles and formula.

These two women, family members of a young woman who has given birth to her first baby....came to our house on Thanksgiving morning. The baby had been born with a cleft palate and hare lip and the young mother was very scared . They didn't have any bottles, formula and they couldn't afford to buy any.

Thanks to the Medrano shipment that we have just unpacked we were able to give them baby bottles. We also gave them formula from our baby feeding program.

Traditionally in Guatemala, women stay at home for 15 days after they give birth.
So we told the family members to tell the young mother to bring the baby after the two week period and we will put the baby on the list to be operated eventually.

Thank you for sending bottles, brushes....these things are so useful.
