Ramiro wished to walk again. He had lost his leg twelve years ago in an accident. He comes from a very distant village in the eastern plains of Colombia. Before the accident Ramiro studied pharmacology and worked at a drugstore. After the accident he had to stop working and started depending on his son. He had to use crutches all the time to move.
Thanks to the generous support of our donors and the efforts we made, Ramiro is able to walk once again. This microproject was retired before we could achieve our US$1,500 goal, but we didn’t stay still. We did a hard work to fund the rest of the prostheses, the travel costs and the psychological help Ramiro needed to recover his mobility with the help of our allies.
The story has a happy ending: Ramiro came 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. Ramiro is now working at his home town, Vista Hermosa – Meta, and is very happy to be doing things he couldn´t do for so long.
Thanks to your donations, Ramiro’s story is another prove of the great results that collaboration and solidarity can achieve. The world is a better place for now on, not just for him but for his family, for us and for you because we have proven that there is hope.
We encourage you to share Ramiro’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!
