This little girl named Marjorie didn’t have much of a future. Marjorie was born with a facial deformity, called a cleft lip. The worst part about Marjorie’s condition was that it made it very difficult for the child to eat. Because of this, she was severely underweight and malnourished. Her parents could not pay for surgery.
“Many times her milk would get into her lungs instead of her stomach and she choked when she was trying to eat,” her mother say. “She did not want to eat much.” Her Dad, Cesar who works as a janitor tried to get a loan for her treatment but it was rejected because of his low income.
With all the hopes diminishing, help came their way when CBN learnt about their child struggles and offered to help cater for all medical expense. After the surgery and a week of recovery, Marjorie could finally eat and live as any other healthy child hoping for a better future.
