Good Samaritan and heart surgery needed

maria Ramos

The country is filled with testimonies of people who need assistance but those who can help are unfortunately in short supply.  Maria Ramos, a twenty-six year old single mother, is one such individual who needs a Good Samaritan at her side.  Ramos, a resident of the Stann Creek Valley, is suffering from a Rheumatic heart condition and is in dire need of immediate corrective surgery. The Ramos family and their doctor in Dangriga have been able to get the surgery free of cost in the U.S but today Ramos told us that they can’t afford the cost of two visas and two round trip tickets to the U.S. to go for the surgery.
