June 8, 2017

Victor is a fourteen-year-old boy who lives with his mother and two sisters in Guatemala’s rural highlands. Although Victor has had many health problems, he studies persistently because he wants to become a doctor one day.

Two years ago, Victor contracted gangrene, and the doctors had to amputate his leg. As a result of the amputation, Victor has difficulty with his mobility and struggles every day with walking around his house and getting to school.

Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is requesting $1,166 to fund Victor’s prosthetic, which he is scheduled to receive on June 9. This will cover the cost of the prosthetic, along with the expenses of fitting and molding sessions.

Victor says, “When I grow up I wish to study a lot and become a doctor. Since I was a kid I have always gotten very sick and I was always in the hospital. I met lots of great doctors and because of that I wish to be a doctor so that I can help people and then I can also take care of my Mom like she does for us.”

Receiving this prosthetic will help Victor move feely like he used to so that he can continue to study and eventually achieve his dreams.
