Make A Child's Mouth Surgery Possible

David in Guatemala was born with a cleft palate, as you can see.  Children with cleft palates are more likely to suffer from infections, malnutrition, dental problems and speech impediments. They also are often ostracized. Luckily, this can be treated with surgery, and David has had one successful surgery. But he needs one more. The cost is $1,000. And we need to raise it by January 11.

As someone who works full-time accompanying young men seeking asylum in the U.S., I work closely with David's uncle. He is a Guatemalan young adult seeking asylum in our nation. Whenever he can, he sends money home to his family. But this cost is beyond his means. His concern for his young nephew's health has touched me.  

So I have decided to reach out to friends and family to help him help his nephew.  Will you help me help him?
