Review for WINGS Guatemala, Pueblo, CO, USA
WINGS changed my life. Before moving to Antigua, Guatemala my family and I were living in the US. I had a professional job which provided health insurance, however when I wanted to have a vasectomy the part that I had to cover was too high that made me changed my mind. It was in 2014. In November 2015 we moved to Antigua, Guatemala.
In march 2016 I attended a workshop about Guatemala and the speaker was an amazing American lady, Sue Patterson, who talked about her experience living in Guatemala and how she has contributed to improve the quality of life of the less favored Guatemalans. I was impressed about her knowledge, passion, desire to contribute and most important her humility. At the end of her presentation I congratulated her and introduced myself and also asked her if I could meet with her to talk about some opportunities. When we met we talked about different topics, one of them WINGS. I said to her that I wanted to had a vasectomy in the US but I couldn't afford it. She introduced me to Rodrigo Barillas and Dr. Michel. After talking to them about my interested in the procedure and why I wanted to do it, I had it.
Everyone was very professional and well focused on the procedure before and after. I can say that it was a great experience. I made a contribution that maybe wasn´t enough for the high quality service that I received.
Another important aspect is that WINGS educate Guatemalans in regards to reproductive heath and help them to afford a vasectomy without any cost.
Since I have had my vasectomy I always talk to people about my experience with WINGS.
THANK YOU WINGS for changing my life and contributing to Guatemala.
You´re welcome and thank YOU for this amazing story!
