With few known coronavirus cases so far, the problem in Magdalena and BV has not been the virus itself, but the economic impact it is having on families who live in extreme poverty.
Many of our patients at Dr. Carlos' clinic are elderly. According to Doc, they have been losing weight and struggling with their health more than normal. The reason: they aren't eating. They have no money for food.
Most of the elderly are sustained by their children who work. Because the virus lockdowns are preventing people from working, the results have been devastating. And in Guatemala, there is little to no government help.
THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO HAVE DONATED TO THIS CAUSE!!!
DR. CARLOS IS WORKING HARD TO ASSURE THAT ALL THE CLINIC PATIENTS STAY FED!
