Urgent need for the future of a family

Friends, we know that you are repeatedly being asked to donate to good causes and your generosity continues to improve the lives of your neighbors. Thank you. We hate to put out this urgent request, but three generations are at risk. However, you can help them.

Recently our friend Nimia, who is a tremendous asset to the Cuenca Soup Kitchen, and her son, Julian, were the victims of a moto/car accident. Both were seriously injured. While Nimia continues to recover from a fractured leg and a fractured pelvis, her son has not been so lucky. While rehabbing, he fell and refractured his leg. He is in grave danger of becoming permanently disabled if he does not have surgery within a week. We were informed by the trauma surgeon that any delay will greatly reduce his ability to heal properly. This will pass the consequences of this terrible accident on to his wife and tiny daughter. With one accident, three generations will be impacted as his ability to work will be greatly hampered for the rest of his life.

Dr. Santiago Romo, whom many of you know, has offered to perform the surgery at a greatly discounted cost, but it is still expensive. We need to raise $7,000 this week. This will cover the anesthesiologist, materials, surgical suite, and post-op therapy. This translates to 70 of you good people donating $100, or 35 of you donating $200, or 14 of you donating $500. Whatever you can donate will be greatly appreciated. We have raised $900 thus far, so it is doable.

Gofundme is an option for our friends in the States:
