Juan is a 45-year-old father from Guatemala. He lives with his wife and three children, aged 12 to 16.
Eight years ago, Juan lost his foot in an accident. As a result, he’s had difficulty being able to work and support his family. On July 19, Juan will be fitted for a custom prosthetic foot at our medical partner’s care center, Hospital Regional de Zacapa. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is asking for $1,166 to cover the cost of his prosthetic. Receiving this treatment will allow Juan to find a new job.
“I am excited to finally be able to have a prosthetic,” says Juan. “I hope to find a job and be able to support my family.”
