Ofelio is a 54-year-old man from Guatemala. He lives with his family in Guatemala’s rural highlands.
Six years ago, while working as a construction worker, Ofelio lost his leg after an accident with a woodcutter. As a result, he’s had trouble finding a stable source of income to support his family.
On July 19, Ofelio will be fitted for a custom prosthetic leg at our medical partner’s care center, Hospital Regional de Zacapa. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is asking for $1,166 to cover the cost of Ofelio’s prosthetic. With his prosthetic leg, Ofelio will be able to walk comfortably and search for a new job.
“I am happy to be able to walk again,” says Ofelio. “Thank you for the support!”
