Juan Daniel is a Bolivian child who had a kidney transplant from his mother Shirley when he was just 8 years old.

The transplant was accompanied by high medicine costs (4.000€ per year, a large value for Bolivia) to avoid the rejection of the kidney which the government would not cover.

Guardavanti helped the Sisters of the Rosary who were taking care of Juan Daniel and his mother on the mission in Cochabamba (view location on the map), guaranteeing the required care to grow healthily and happily in his battle for life.

A love gesture

Being subjected to a kidney transplant in childhood is a very difficult challenge to face.
Donating a kidney to her own child was a love gesture that should be valued.
