Fact from the World Health Organization:
Low weight-for-height is known as wasting. It usually indicates recent and severe weight loss, because a person has not had enough food to eat and/or they have had an infectious disease, such as diarrhoea, which has caused them to lose weight. A young child who is moderately or severely wasted has an increased risk of death, but treatment is possible.
Lilina became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 2004 and married Mark Davis in the California Oakland Temple. She and her husband decided to stay here in the Philippines. Currently she is the Relief Society President of the Potitan Branch. She said, “I love helping people especially the children,” and that’s why she volunteers with Bountiful Children’s Foundation.
