How to Fix Block Foundation?

Hello and I'm new here. I've owned my house now for 4 years and I do not have gutters in the front of my house as I was recently informed was the reason for my deteriorating foundation blocks. I really didn't even notice it but my father in law pointed out that my blocks were deteriorating and said I should look into fixing it. So here I am. On other parts of my house, the block is very dense looking and almost smooth. This area however is rather rough and porous looking. What do you all recommend as far as fixing it?

Ya, hard to tell much from that pic
Stucco or mortar is often used to repair/cover block.
