Helping Wilson Heal
In 2002, Wilson Rodriguez was born without an anus and his body was dangerously unable to excrete waste. He lives with his mom and two younger siblings in Hoya de Bartola, referred to as “The Hole”, a landfill in Santiago, Dominican Republic. G.O. Ministries met Wilson through our Nutrition Center there where his mom faithfully serves as one of the cooks each day. At three days old, he had a colostomy to place his colon on the outside of his body. At five years old he underwent reconstructive surgery that resulted in failure and numerous complications. By six years old, they had to give him another colostomy that he has battled one infection after the other in addition to bleeding due to the unsanitary conditions he lives in.
