Mila is a 47-year-old mother of five. Four of her children are married, and she lives with her husband, youngest son, and four grandchildren. Mila enjoys staying at home and taking care of her grandchildren. Her husband works as a fisherman to support the family.
Mila was born with cleft lip and palate. This condition causes her social difficulty. Fortunately, she is in a community served by our medical partner, International Care Ministries. On November 3, she underwent cleft lip surgery. This treatment will improve Mila’s self-confidence. She needs help to pay her $322 medical bill.
“I dreamed of being treated since I was young,” says Mila. She adds that she is grateful for help from donors.
Her husband, Carlos, shares, “My family is so thankful for having this opportunity that will make my wife’s dream come true.”
