My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Opal House, Snohomish, WA, USA
I have just returned from my third surgical mission to Opal House in San Lucas Toliman, Guatemala.
Once again we were able to perform safe, state of the art and life changing orthopedic surgery in what must be the smallest hospital in one of the smallest cities in Guatemala.
Opal House Administrators Will and Diane Boegel find time in their never ending days to also function as surgeon and surgery technician. They find Guatemala's broken children, born disabled or injured
and offer them life changing surgery. I don't think one can put a value on helping a young person out of a wheelchair to where he can communicate eye to eye, or straightening the club foot of a teenage girl where she might begin to imagine herself as being like the other girls in the village. Yet in my thirty years of medical practice the work of Opal House is the most meaningful of my career.
