Mario is 4 years old. Today he was rushed to the hospital in Solola when a pot of boiling water was pushed onto him.
Mario's father left him and his 4 siblings and went to live with another woman. His mother also left him and his siblings and went to live with another man.
Mario and his two other young brothers are being raised by an aunt. The two older children are adults now and have moved on with their lives.
Mario's aunt has to work to be able to feed the children. She has a 16 year old girl looking after the children while she is at work. There was a big pot of boiling water on the fire......Mario and his brothers were playing inside...and there was an accident, one of them shoved Mario and the pot fell on top of him burning him severely.
He is now in Solola hospital and the aunt needs medication to be able to help him.
She does not have the money to purchase these medicines. Also now she has to stay at the hospital caring for Mario and she cannot work to feed the family.
If you would like to help Mario get the medication he needs and also his aunt have money to feed the other children, please send a donation to www.mayanfamilies.org ...and note on it ...MARIO. ...thank you so much!
