Eva received treatment for her severe arthritis.

Our medical partner reports, “Eva was suffering from a severe depression because she felt alone, isolated and abandoned with her illness. She is so grateful to have found the help of the WK and Watsi teams. Her mood and outlook on life are markedly improved as a result of this support.”

Meet Eva, a 37-year-old from Guatemala. Eva works in a local market as a saleswoman. She has severe arthritis that causes significant and constant pain, especially in her hands and knees. She cannot perform her normal tasks around the home. Her income has suffered as she finds it hard to sell her goods in the market like she used to. Because this issue has been so long standing, she is also battling depression.

Eva was receiving treatment for her condition and felt much improved. However, she subsequently ran out of money and had to end treatment. Her family is very supportive but cannot afford to continue her care. She’s come to our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, looking for help to get her treatment back on track.

For $450, her treatment will be resumed. She will get started on immune suppressing medications to modulate her inflammation and get her arthritis under control. Doctors will monitor for any side effects from these medications extensively and adjust the treatment as necessary. They anticipate that the treatment will be highly effective and that she will be pain free and able to get back to her life! Let’s make it happen!
