At just 15 years old, Ruben is worried about his grandfather. His father is an alcoholic and Ruben doesn´t live with him. He has never known his mother – doesn´t know where she lives – or anything at all about her. He makes his home in Colpa, a mountain village within the Curahuasi vicinity.
Recently Ruben´s hands were caught in a grain milling machine and badly injured. It was an obvious case for Australian surgeon, Dr Michael Stathis. Unfortunately for Ruben, during his 2 week stay in the hospital no one from his family has come to visit. Not even one friend has come.
Dear Diospi Suyana friends, it is your faithful support that makes it possible for us to help this young Quechua boy. He is receiving all his treatment and meals without charge.
