How sponsorship improved Rubén’s health
See how a sponsored child received ongoing treatment needed to overcome severe burns
A child's health and well-being is a priority at Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, so when 18-month-old Rubén was burned by boiling water and ended up in an induced coma in a Paraguay burn hospital, our local partner stepped in to help.
“The sponsorship program has always helped us,” explains Rubén’s mom, nine years after the accident. “It’s helped us access health consultants, make doctor follow-ups and even pay for medicine. We will always be grateful.”
Watch the video below to meet Rubén and see his journey to recovery.
