A happy encounter 13 years later


Most of our patients have surgical needs common throughout the world. However, in rural Guatemala problems are seen that should have been addressed when the problem was first noticed but by waiting, the problem has become a major issue. 

This past June I was approached by a woman who immediately remembered me from 13 years ago.  As soon as she showed me her feet, I remembered her, Alicia. She had come to us barely able to walk because of two club feet. As a teenager, she had few prospects for a life outside the family home - but now she is married with two children and her smile reflects how that surgical repair 13 years ago changed her life. For me, that was the highlight of the week and once again reminded me of the importance of the work of Partner for Surgery

We accomplish our mission  with local Guatemalans, volunteer medical professionals and the support of donors such as you.  We ask that you please continue to help us so we can continue to help others like Manuel, Juan and Alicia.  The work goes on – to date, our organization has given the opportunity for surgery to over 11,000 rural, impoverished Guatemalans and the need is there to provide life changing help to many more.
This story is part of the July report shared on GlobalGiving for our Medical Care for 2,000 Rural Guatemalan Families project.
