This is 19 year old Miguel, from Gualaceo, along with Dra Siguencia and Miguel's wife Jaqueline.
Miguel lost his right eye 2 years ago in an accident and Dra Siguencia is in the process of making him a prosthetic eye which he should have by Wednesday. His young wife was in tears when she realized Miguel would actually receive help.
They both suffer from glaucoma and will be examined by the eye surgeons at Exilaser in Cuenca in a few weeks.
A huge thank you goes out to Dra Mariela Elisa Siguencia and our HKIE supporters for making these life enhancing medical services available to this young couple.
