MAGDALENA LÓPEZ SÁNCHEZ, HEALTH PROGRAM
Now my son is healthy and I have grown as a mother
The story of Magdalena López Sánchez and her son Abraham Sánchez López is strongly linked to the Nutritional Recovery Program of FUNDAP. In the year 2016 the child was two years old, weighed 19 pounds and could not stand on his own. His legs were excessively thin and therefore had not developed correctly, since his weight was more common in the children of twelve months. After benefitting from this program, Magdalena received specific medical instructions to perform muscle strengthening exercises for her son, as well as providing vitamins and nutrients to complement his diet. Inside the project they also taught how to prepare a variety of nutritious foods including simple and easily accessible ingredients.
“She has also become more
aware of her role as a mother“
After following the health advice and giving Abraham more solid food, in December he had already increased his weight to 24 pounds, but he had also shown an appetite and could walk on his own. Given the transformation, Magdalena is very happy to have participated in this project, because in addition to her son’s health improvement, she has also become more aware of her role as a mother, gaining the ability to care for him and care for her family.
