about Rodolfo's recovery.

June 8, 2017

Years ago, while working as a day laborer in the local countryside, Rodolfo suffered an accident that caused him the loss of his leg. Now Rodolfo struggles every day with his walking and general mobility.

Rodolfo lives with his wife and children in Guatemala’s rural highlands. He and his wife have eight children, four boys and four girls. After he lost his leg, Rodolfo has been unable to work and spends his time taking care of the animals that he and his wife keep. Rodolfo’s wife generates a small income by producing artisan items, such as weaving traditional Mayan textiles. Because of their small income, Rodolfo and his wife are unable to afford a prosthetic.

With Watsi funding, Rodolfo will receive a specially molded leg fit just for him on June 9. Receiving this prosthesis will change Rodolfo’s life. He hopes that he will be able to walk again and move freely so that he can be able to support his wife and family.

Rodolfo says, “I wish to open my own business once I have my prosthetic. With your help I will be able to move easily again. I thank God for helping me to find you all.”
