As a charity we have a policy of not helping individuals, rather we donate to groups in La Gonave where the local people are able to use the money for the greatest benefit within their community. However, recently we were approached to help a man called Clotere.
He has a problem of swelling within his left testicle and as you can see from the picture that is quite an understatement. His problem requires surgery and is not straightforward. He needs to go to a hospital on the mainland for treatment. This is likely to be quite costly. Having seen the extent of his problem we felt we could not refuse to help. We hope you will want to help too! Problems on this scale are not uncommon in Haiti where many people have little or no access to medical advice. If you donate to our Kiltwalk appeal here
we receive a 50% uplift from Tom Farmer on your donation. We hope this makes you just a wee bit more appreciative of a Scottish NHS which means problems for you will never get this big! If we raise more money than the cost of surgery for Clotere the excess will go to the hospital fund to help other people in similar circumstances.
