When Lester arrived at a malnutrition center in Guatemala, he was on the brink of death.
At 13 months, he weighed just nine pounds and was suffering from diarrhea, vomiting, pneumonia and parasites.
In his first year of life,Lester knew nothing but hunger
and sickness. His family took him to one hospital after another, where he was briefly treated and then released. At one hospital, he was refused admittance and his family was told, “He isn’t worth taking care of because he is going to die.”
