June 8, 2017

Elder is a 29-year-old man from Guatemala. He lives with his family in the country’s rural highlands. Married with two children, Elder is the main provider for his family’s needs.

Since he was a little boy, Elder has struggled with his vision, but he was never able to afford a doctor’s visit in order to get his eyes checked. A few years ago, he was able to go to a clinic and receive an eye exam and free pair of glasses. This prescription is now out of date, and Elder is in need of a new pair of glasses.

Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is requesting $552 to cover the cost of Elder’s new glasses. He is scheduled to receive his new prescription on June 9 at our medical partner’s care center, Intituto Panamericano.

“I am very happy and grateful since I attended the clinic,” Elder says. “After undergoing the exams and procedures I hope that I will receive glasses because it will help me greatly.”
