Meet Francisco, a 64-year-old from Guatemala! Francisco has had severe psoriasis for years. His condition causes large, painful skin lesions that make it difficult for him to continue working as a farmer, but he cannot access the healthcare he needs on his own.
“Francisco has never had medical help for his condition, simply because he is too poor to pay,” our hospital partner writes. “He came to us because he’s heard great things about WK’s medical team and their ability to really turn things around for patients with these kinds of conditions.”
For $425, we can help WK provide Francisco with a laboratory workup to assess his situation, as well as immune suppressing medications to heal his lesions and reduce the pain and swelling in his joints.
“With this treatment,” WK writes, “the social stigma of his disease will disappear, and he will be able to get on with his life and his work without pain. Of course, once we get him over the hump with the help of the Watsi network, we’ll be able to guarantee him long term followup to make sure he stays well.”
Let’s help Francisco get and stay well!
