Meet the RVF’s New Intern

Kelly Doyle, a student at the University of Denver, is spending the summer researching new funding opportunities for the RVF. Kelly is a native of Chicago and has spent summers volunteering at an orphanage in Honduras. She is fluent in Spanish and, after graduation, plans to work with non-profits in Central and South America.

Kids Helping Kids

During our December 2017 work trip to Montero, Bolivia, we were accompanied by high school juniors Jordan Craig and Lucia Ledesma. Their job was to capture still photos and video of our patients, families and RVF staff. They are pictured with RVF patient Yoselín and her cousin. 

Hugo’s Story: Life Changing Surgery and Scholarship

Hugo was 13 when he was introduced to the RVF in 2005. His diagnosis was trichiasis, a condition in which the eyelashes grow inward. Although his vision was normal, for many years his eyes suffered from chronic and severe irritation and infections.

Yoselín’s Story: Learning to Walk at Last

Yoselin became a patient of the RVF in 2007. Based on the limited information provided, we believe she had meningitis at the age of 9 months and that she was not adequately treated. With rapid and aggressive IV medications, meningitis can be cured; however, if the infection is allowed to advance, it can be lethal.

Sarah’s Story: Employment, Community & A Place To Call Home

The daughter of a single mother who had worked for years cleaning CSRA clinics, Sarah was long recognized as a bright child with a great deal of potential. It was therefore disappointing that Sarah was only sixteen years old when she learned that not only was she pregnant, she was pregnant with twins.
