Mingo is our sweet boy who lives in the mountains of Guatemala. He has encephalocele, a type of neural defect characterized by sac-like protrusions of the brain and membranes through openings in the skull. It’s a rare defect that occurs during fetal development and the lack of pre-natal care is a factor. He does not speak, he is not potty-trained and his family is chastised for his condition. He lives in terrible conditions and needs our help to get the surgery he desperately needs. We need $15K to cover the surgery and post surgety care.
