Review for WINGS Guatemala, Pueblo, CO, USA
When I first learned about WINGS through a friend, I was impressed by the affordable prices they offered. Years before, I paid $340 for an IUD, approximately the monthly minimum wage in Guatemala. I saved money for months, hoping no other emergency payments would come up in the meantime. If I had known about WINGS back then, I wouldn’t have had to wait for months and spend all my savings to get my IUD. I was so satisfied with the care that I brought my 19-year-old niece for contraception counselling. Our family is very conservative and I didn’t have sex education in school. I don’t want the same thing to happen to her.
After that, I persuaded my brother to get a vasectomy. He had been wanting to have the procedure for a long time. However, he recently lost his job and he could not afford the surgery. This is why it’s so difficult for Guatemalans to invest money in long-term contraception - it’s too much money to spend all at once and you never know when you may need it.
I am so grateful to WINGS for supporting my family. ¡Muchas gracias!
