Cesar received a prosthetic leg.

Cesar has received a prosthetic leg, which was built with a mold made just for him. Now that he has two legs again Cesar can do a multitude of things that he couldn’t before. This leg is life-changing for Cesar, and will help him in every aspect of his life.

Cesar says, “I am very happy with the prosthetic that you have supported me with. I continue working, and little by little I am getting used to the prosthetic and I am happy.”

Cesar is a 50-year-old married father of four who lives in Guatemala’s rural highlands. His and his wife’s joint sales of small rings provides a source of family income.

For years, Cesar worked as an agricultural laborer in the local countryside. Unfortunately, Cesar suffered an accident that resulted in the need for an amputation of his leg at the hip. For many years now, Cesar has struggled to walk, go to work, and complete daily tasks.

Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is requesting $1,166 to cover the cost of a prosthetic leg for Cesar. The start of Cesar’s fitting and molding sessions is scheduled for July 7. Receiving this prosthesis will positively impact Cesar’s life, hopefully allowing him to walk more easily, comfortably, and independently.

“I hope that by recovering my leg I can do something with my life. With our business we only earn pennies. Hopefully with the new leg I will be able to do something new, something unique,” expresses Cesar.
