NUEVA SILLA PARA BENJAMIN DE COLOMBIA



My name is Benjamin Fuentes, I am 55 years old from Colombia and I have been working all my life and being able to buy the things I need, but 7 years ago my life changed completely, I had a work accident. I remember that everything was going well as usual. I went to work at the same time as always without imagining that that day my life would change.

I fell from the fourth floor approximately 12 meters high as a result of the impact of an electric shock, which caused a fracture in the spine and deteriorated my spinal cord. I spent a long time in a hospital struggling between life and death with oxygen, facing multiple complications. Until I was finally diagnosed with spinal cord trauma (TRM) which consists of traumatic injuries that affect the different structures of the spine at any of its levels: bone, ligamentous, cartilaginous, muscular, vascular, meningeal, radicular and spinal cord structures. . What causes me to have no sensitivity in my lower limbs, I must use a wheelchair to move and be able to go out to do daily activities, due to the accident I cannot work and I do not have financial resources to buy a new wheelchair and be able to have social life , and achieving greater well-being for my day to day.

But thank God today I am alive and with the desire to move on
What I want most is to have the financial resources and get my wheelchair
Thanks to Fundación Caly for the support provided in publishing and following up on my cause
Blessings from Colombia


Mi nombre es Benjamin Fuentes, de nacionalidad Colomibiana tengo 55 años de edad y toda mi vida me gustó trabajar y poder comprar las cosas que necesito, pero hace 7 años mi vida cambio totalmente, tuve un accidente laboral. Recuerdo que todo iba bien como de costumbre ingresé a trabajar a la misma hora de siempre sin imaginar que ese día mi vida cambiaría.

Me caí del cuarto piso aproximadamente a 12 metros de altura producto del impacto de una descarga eléctrica, lo cual acasiono fractura en la columna y deteriorando mi médula espinal, estuve mucho tiempo en un hospital debatiendome entre la vida y la muerte con oxígeno, enfrentando múltiples complicaciones. Hasta que finalmente me diagnosticaron Traumatismo raquimedular (TRM) lo cual consiste en lesiones traumáticas que afectan las diferentes estructuras de la columna vertebral a cualquiera de sus niveles: estructuras óseas, ligamentosas, cartilaginosas, musculares, vasculares, meníngeas, radiculares y de la médula espinal. Lo que ocasiona que no tenga sencibilidad en mis miembros inferiores, Debo usar silla de ruedas para transladarme y poder salir a realizar las actividades cotidianas, debido al accidente no puedo trabajar y no tengo recursos económicos para compra una silla de ruedas y poder tener inclusión social, y logrando un mayor bienestar para mi día a día.

Pero Gracias a Dios hoy me encuentro con vida y con deseo de seguir adelante
Lo que más deseo es contar con los recursos económicos y obtener mi silla de ruedas
Gracias a Fundación Caly por el apoyo brindado en publicar y darle seguimiento a mi causa
Bendiciones desde Colombia
