Raul was born in October 2009 as part of a set of twins, both affected with a genetic skin condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa. EB causes skin to blister with even slight pressure or friction. Sadly, Raul's twin passed away at one month old due to complications. Raul was moved to a nearby clinic at five months old, which is where he is currently living. Due to his condition, Raul requires painful daily bandaging and wound care. The only supplies available locally are harsh on his fragile skin, so I am raising funds to continue to supply wound care items from the U.S. Over the last few months with the international bandages I have seen him become a smiley and alert little boy, despite his condition. There is no cure, or even treatment, for EB, but these bandages give his skin a better chance at healing and help to prevent new wounds. Please help me to continue to provide these much needed supplies!
