Meet Pablo. Eleven years ago Pablo was shot in the neck by a drunken man who mistook him for someone else. Pablo was paralyzed from the neck down and has been a quadriplegic ever since. He lives with his mother in a humble home in the mountains outside of Marcala. He had not seen a doctor or nurse in seven years, until our recent visit. He lies on an old chaise lounge with a leaking water bed (a small medical-type waterbed) with only his mother to provide his care.
How You Can Help
We want to help Pablo by providing his most urgent need right now. You can help us to make a big difference. With your support, we can provide Pablo a 4" foam mattress and a medical-grade waterbed. We can also purchase urinary catheters and skin care products to prevent bed sores.
We have worked with many paraplegics and quadriplegics in Honduras and with these basic necessities we can start to make a real impact in the quality of Pablo's life.
