Featured Child — Astrid

Jessica, 3-year-old Astrid’s mother, works hard selling tortillas and washing clothes to buy beans and corn to feed Astrid. When there is no corn to make tortillas and no laundry to wash, she comforts Astrid who tells her she is hungry. “I feel bad because I can’t give my child what she needs,” Jessica says softly.

Astrid shows clinical signs of malnutrition, pushing her mother even harder to try and help her vulnerable daughter. Jessica says that she believes God hears her prayers to keep Astrid safe.
