THE STORY:

We met Fatima, a 15 year old born in San Marcos, Guatemala, while visting her mother for a weaving class. Her mother, Imelda, is the sole provider for a family of 10, selling her textiles to tourists that come to visit San Marcos La Laguna. In the last four months styes on both Fatima´s eyelids have developed, effecting her ability to study in school and causing pain during the night. Her mother took her to a local Mayan doctor, who attempted to treat the styes without result. Fatima needs to see a specialist two hours away in Santiago. The cost of the operation is much more than Fatima´s family can afford. Due to political unrest, tourism has been effected and Fatima is struggling to make a living. Any amount of money would be a gift to the family, as the local wage is less than $350 a month.
