My stepson's tragic accident

On Wednesday, August 15th, my husband's son Omar had a tragic accident while at work in Guatemala.  He was accidentally electrocuted. He burned more than 50% of his body. Yesterday his left hand and forearm were amputated just below his elbow. He is extremely lucky to be alive. The doctors say that Omar is a miracle. 75000 volts went thru his body. Healthcare in Guatemala is not like it is here in the United States. Family members have to buy all the supplies that are needed for treatment. Omar has a long road of recovery ahead of him. Mentally and physically. Omar is 31 years old and has a beautiful wife and gorgeous little daughter. All the money donated will go directly to Omar to help with medical sypplies and any other needs that might arise. Please, no amount is too small. If you can find it in your heart to help, it will be so appreciated by all of our family. 
Thank you.
