Josue’s story is an amazing example of the power of many hands working together. “Friends of Guatemala” is not just the name of our organization; it is our philosophy and our practice- joining hands and resources to help out in one small part of the world. In 2008 many people, events, and some divine intervention came together to bring Josue from Guatemala to the US for a life-saving heart procedure. Thanks to the administration and medical staff of Roper St. Frances Hospital in Charleston, SC Josue has a new heart and a great story to tell. You can read that story in the hospital newsletter – Josue at RSFH . A special thanks to Dr. David Peterseim who arranged the medical procedure and hosted Josue in his home.
