Helping a hero!
Eusebio Caal Ichich, a dedicated husband and father, has worked as a firefighter in Guatemala for more than 16 years. A few years ago, he noticed his vision started to fade. Eusebio had cataracts in each eye – a devastating problem for a firefighter. As he did not have access to proper vision care, he could not find treatment. His supervisors demoted him – first transferring him to a desk job fielding phone calls, then making him a janitor when his eyesight became too impaired for that. When his vision deteriorated further, they simply fired him.
Fortunately, Eusebio heard of a Seva partner hospital, the Vincent Pescatore Eye Clinic. Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, he received surgeries on both eyes. After a quick, safe, and inexpensive procedure, he could see, in his words, "as good as new again."
When Eusebio regained his sight, he also regained a sense of purpose. Today, he is back to serving his community and saving lives as a firefighter.
