Julio received dental work to repair his teeth so he can eat normally and get healthy again.

Julio is a 43-year-old father of three living Guatemala. He has severe diabetes, and it’s caused rotting in his teeth that prevent him from eating normally.

“This causes severe pain and multiple life threatening infections,” our medical partner writes. “Also, he is losing weight and is extremely malnourished, literally because it hurts to eat.”

By raising $1330, we can provide Julio with dental work to allow him to eat normally. Our partner says, “this will allow him to be pain-free, give him some self-esteem, and help him gain weight and strength so he can get back to work!”
