Nutre Hogar Chiriqui is a non-profit organization that treats 40 severely malnourished children who are transferred from the Malnutrition Ward at Hospital Materno Infantil Jose Domingo De Obaldia. They attend to the children’s needs with medicine, dietary supplements, education, and MUCH LOVE.
To give you an understanding of the scope of their Mission, they need $25,000.00 per month to maintain operations.http://nutrehogar.org/
