Yesterday we delivered an oxygen concentrator to Jhander, This portable breathing device will allow Jhander to walk around instead of being tethered to the much bigger tank.
We want to thank Deb Mellentine for suggesting we look for this type of mobile breathing device and to Tom Larson for locating it and Chuck and Nancy Watson for selling the device to HKIE and then making a generous donation.
Jhander and his mother were all smiles and tears as we showed him how to use the breathing device. He will continue using the large oxygen tank at night until his Jan 17 doctor appointment, but at least the trips to refill the large O2 tank will now be once or twice a week rather than daily.
HKIE is continuing our support for food, medicine and transportation while he and his mother remain in Cuenca.
The story of Jhander continues along with his miraculous recovery!
