Little 3 year old Moises (651) was having fevers and constant sore throats. Dr. Diego Maldonado saw the little one and requested HKIE's help as the parents had no money. Moises had his tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy last week at Hospital del Rio and all will be well with this little one.
As always, Dr Maldonato waived his surgical fees and the hopsital gave us a very generous discount on their fees.
Thirteen year old Jennifer (652) had special corneal rings implanted by Exilaser 3 months ago. This past week she had follow up surgery to help prevent any further deterioration of her eyesight. Without these two surgeries, Jennifer was facing a future with very limited vision or no vison at all.
Thanks to Dr. Miotto and Exilaser for their discounts to HKIE and the generous support of our donors, HKIE was able to pay for these two expensive surgeries and save Jennifer's eyesight.
Jennifer was referred to HKIE by Garry from Fundación Hogar de Esperanza in Cuenca. Garry and his team always insure that patients they refer to us get to their appointments on time and follow the instructions form the doctors.
Jennifer is a good example of two foundations working together to help a child in need.
