In Jahiem’s own words after his surgery last month, “I haven’t felt this normal in 2 years!”
World Pediatric Project was able to connect Jahiem to care locally in Belize for treatment of his painful and debilitating kidney stones. While the surgery was quick, our WPP Belize office spent weeks working to obtain the necessary labs and imaging needed to determine a correct diagnosis and treatment plan. And the ability to obtain the surgery at a reduced cost including the donation of services by key local physicians comes from our WPP Belize staff’s continued efforts over the years to forge strong and trusting relationships which are paramount to our ability to efficiently and effectively assist more children within their own region.
Special thanks to Belize Specialist Clinic/Belize Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Center, Marcelo Miranda, Dr. Lucio Ellington, Friends of Pediatrics - Belize, and Hospital Auxilliary – and to our incredible staff in Belize, Milagro Garel and Khandice Tillet, who work closely with our families and partners to deliver miracles every day for children awaiting care.
