Success! Maria from Guatemala raised $850 to get healthy.

  • $850 raised, $0 to go
Fully funded
Maria's treatment was fully funded on January 13, 2013.

Maria is a lovely 3-year-old girl who has never spoken and cannot hear. Doctors at Wuku’ Kawoq have diagnosed her with sensorineural hearing loss, likely from an infection during pregnancy.

Fortunately, Maria’s condition is totally treatable. With hearing aids, Maria will be able to begin learning to talk and communicate with her family. Speech therapy will also help to kick start this process and maximize her potential.

Maria’s parents are attentive to her needs but work in subsistence farming and cannot afford the treatment that her condition requires. Let’s help her get the medical care she needs to start communicating!
