February 2, 2017

Eduardo is a 13-year-old boy from Guatemala. He lives with his parents and nine siblings. He loves playing with his brothers and sisters and enjoys listening to music.

Eduardo was born with microcephaly, a condition in which the brain develops unusually small and causes various developmental abnormalities. As a result, Eduardo experiences seizures that prevent him from being able to walk on his own. When he was younger, his family carried him on their backs to go to medical appointments. However, now that he is older and bigger, they are unable to carry him.

Through our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq (WK), Eduardo will receive a wheelchair on February 28. WK is asking for $1,034 to cover the cost of the wheelchair. This wheelchair will make the world accessible for Eduardo.
