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!

Jane

Jane is a 35-year-old farmer, a single mother of two, and the 5th born child in a family of twelve. Due to the size of their family and how close-knit they are, Jane's mother commented, “all my daughters (6) have been married, gotten children, and then have come back home. I never even remember who is who and who follows the other." Jane was born with a disability and never able to attend school. Jane's mother helps to take care of her. Earlier this month, Jane was working and going through her daily activities when she slipped and fell, sustaining a fractured clavicle on her right side. Jane is in severe pain, and she is not able to go about her normal activities. Jane came to the hospital accompanied by her elderly mother and her niece, and Jane's mother shared her story with the hospital staff. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 16th, Jane will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF). Following the procedure, Jane will not experience pain, the fracture will heal well and she will be able to work and take care of her children as normal. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,049 to fund this procedure. Jane’s mother said, “I am desperate and Jane has been a great challenge to take care of even before she was sick. I kindly request help so that at least she can be well and assist herself where she can. I also wish she can be relieved of this pain.”
