Yohana
View original language description ↓
Yohana has had to overcome innumerable challenges in her life. First, she was abandoned by her fiancé, and then her young child became ill. Her son suffers from mental retardation as a consequence of a vaccine that he was given in the heel. This occurred at Pichanaki hospital in Peru. As a consequence, the child did not develop well during his first few years, and today he still has complications that keep him from speaking and developing like other children his age. Yohana struggles every day to work in her papaya and citric fruit fields in order to pay for her son’s costly treatments at the San Juan de Dios hospital in the city of Lima, Peru. She and her ex-fiancé struggle to cover the costs of treatments and hospital visits. However, she looks to you as a support in order to continue helping her son. She is asking for money in order to invest in her fruit fields. You can help her child indirectly by supporting his mother. Don’t doubt that he needs your assistance.

Translated from Spanish by Debra Faszer-McMahon, Kiva Volunteer.
