Carlos From Colombia
Meet Carlos. Carlos was referred to Healing the Children by volunteers who traveled to his small village in the mountains of Colombia. Carlos was born without an anus and suffered from a severe urological condition. He was 9 years old and still wore diapers. He also had difficulty walking due to his condition. He suffered great embarrassment due to his condition. The children in his village made fun of him and he often felt left out. Carlos was accepted at one of our partner hospitals in Georgia. Carlos returned to Colombia - his medical issues cured - and is off and running with his peers. He now spends his days playing soccer.
