Success! Walter from Guatemala raised $210 to get healthy.

  • $210 raised, $0 to go
Fully funded
Walter's treatment was fully funded on December 11, 2012.

Walter is a 3-year-old boy with phimosis, a common condition in which the foreskin of the penis does not move easily down. In Walter’s case this has led to multiple infections. If left untreated, Walter will continue to suffer from pain and serious infections that limit his ability to live a normal life.

Luckily, the treatment is very simple. Walter’s doctors told us that circumcision will cure this problem forever. They added that Walter belongs to a low-income indigenous family, and that surgical care without external help of advocacy is “inaccessible” due to the high costs of surgery and the costs of transportation. Let’s help Walter get treatment and get on with his life!
