Imagine being a mom in Guatemala, she works hard to provide for her family, though she hardly makes ends meet. One day, her son comes home from school, completely sick. He has a fever, an earache, and a headache. She tries to help him by giving him water, which is dirty. She tries to comfort him, by tucking him in to his bed, which is on the dirt ground. With each passing day, he gets sicker. Because his mom struggles to put food on the table, she doesn’t have any extra money to send her son to the doctor or buy him medicine. So she waits. Maybe he will ride it out and feel better in a couple of weeks. Or maybe he will continue to get sick.
Imagine being that mom. Imagine not having the option to help him feel better. And now, imagine having G.R.A.C.E Health Center within walking distance. Imagine having a place to take your child who is sick. Imagine not having to worry about how much it may cost to see the doctor or provide them with medicine. Imagine the relief that will come to that mom.
