Thanks to Fundación Metrofraternidad and Hospital Metropolitano Quito for continuing their monthly missions and for working with us.
Child 758 is 16 year old Isaac, and 759 is 10 year old Alexander. Both these boys suffered from keratoconus, which is when the cornea bulges outward causing severe vision problems.
Child 760 is 4 year old Jhon whose eyelashes were growing inward. We all know how irritating one eyelash in the eye can be...imagine all of them touching your eye. The doctors cauterized the lashes in the hope of them regrowing correctly.
Last is child 761, 4 year old Valentina. She had a non cancerous growth at her eye which was removed.
All four children now have corrected vision and a chance to lead a normal life. Thanks to the eye surgeons at Hospital Metropolitano for donating her expertise, to the Hospital Metropolitano and Fundación Metrofraternidad for working with HKIE and of course to all our donors for helping HKIE improve the lives of these children!
