Natalí Pumara is a pediatrician and volunteers in our Center at Suncho Corral. Once each month, she Natali travels to Tucumán to provide medical attention to the families in our program. That’s how she met Francisco, a 3-year-old kid in our Nutrition Program.
"As soon as I checked him, I noticed he was suffering from serious a heart condition, and it was a miracle that he was still alive. Francisco didn’t receive regular medical attention and, since his birth, several hospitals had postponed the intervention he needed".
Natalí managed to get Francisco the surgery he needed in Hospital del Niño Jesús, in San Miguel de Tucumán, which was a success. Francisco was released from the hospital and went back to his home in Suncho Corral. Having had the medical attention he needed in the right time, he is now able to have a normal life and enjoy playing with his friends every day.
