As told to Paola
Hello! My name is Grover Choque. I am 30 years old and I come from a small town in the Inquisivi Province. Four years ago I was in a car accident where I fractured my cervical vertebra C5-C6. In the hospital, my surgery was delayed due to financial reasons and after four months I was finally able to have the needed operation. They put a platinum piece in my back and I returned home with the sad news of that I would not be able to move my body again. I was stuck inside at home for 4 years without strength, very depressed, and without hope of living. One day I heard that some church members who help people in my situation had come to my town. I quickly asked my mother to find them and talk with them. That's how I learned of Proyecto B3 and met DJ and Paola (PT). They offered to help me and I was very grateful when they found a place for me to stay in Cochabamba while receiving the necessary help in my rehabilitation. I feel better and stronger and have once again found a will and reason to live. I have a daughter, Mayerli, who also gives me a reason to continue pressing on every day and I am very grateful to God and Proyecto B3 for what they have done for me. I am so much better now!
Sometimes it is not easy to be in my situation. It requires a lot of patience that only God can give. It is sad to think that there are many people that aren’t able to get help because of a lack of financial or emotional support. It is often very lonely to be like this and I thank God and everyone for your support and your prayers!
