Guillermo can walk again

It is a great satisfaction for us to be able to help Guillermo recover his ability to walk again. Thanks to our donors and their generous support we succeeded in the achievement of our goal of giving one of our beneficiaries the prostheses he needs to live his life as he did before he had a motorcycle accident.

With the donations we received, we paid for the travel cost so Guillermo could come to Mahavir Kmina Limb Center where we adjusted his new leg to his measures and we could finally install the prostheses he needed so much.

Thanks to your donations, Guillermo is ready now to spend more time with his young daughter and his able now to carry her around and walk her to the park. We We encourage you to share Guillermo’s story so a lot of people get to know the great things that Mahavir Kmina Limb Center can achieve with the support of people like you.

Once again thank you!

Guillermo camina otra vez

Es una gran satisfacción para nosotros haber podido ayudar a Guillermo a recuperar su capacidad de caminar. Gracias a nuestros donantes y a su generoso apoyo, logramos con éxito nuestra meta de darle a uno de nuestros beneficiarios la prótesis que necesita para continuar viviendo su vida como lo hacía antes de tener un accidente en motocicleta.

Con las donaciones que recibimos cubrimos los costos de transporte para que Guillermo pudiera venir a Mahavir Kmina, en donde le ajustamos su nueva pierna a sus medidas y finalmente pudimos ponerle la prótesis que tanto necesitaba.

Gracias a sus donaciones, Guillermo está listo para pasar más tiempo con su hija, puede cargarla y acompañarla al parque. Los invitamos a compartir la historia de Guillermo para que muchas personas se enteren de las grandes cosas que Mahavir Kmina puede lograr con el apoyo de personas como tú.


Una vez más ¡muchas gracias!
