What happened to Luis (the blind beggar) ?

Recommended Posts

Luis had a fall that left him with serious back and head injuries. He underwent back surgery and is now home in a body cast. The prognosis is not too encouraging. He will be immobile for at least four to six months.

This is the man who found a wallet in his box when he arrived home from begging at Super Lake. The story was written in the Guadalajara Reporter. Luis found someone to help him see who the wallet belonged to and then he paid a cab, went to the person´s home and returned the wallet.

Right now Luis needs all the help he can get. Despite his blindness he has helped himself and his elderly mother as much as he has been capable of. Now he is laying in a bed paralyzed and unable to fend for himself..

Thanks to the selfless and tireless efforts of Aurora Michel, Ileana & Julio Lopez and Pete, a secure bank account has finally been opened for Luis to receive donations from anyone wishing to help him in his plight and until he recovers. He needs (and will continue to need for the next several months) medicines, food, diapers and a companion to bathe him, feed etc..

If you wish to make a donation. you can do so at his newly opened DIF account:

Bank: Actinver

Account # 722-50.22

Luis´s full name: Jose Luis Vasquez Rios

If you need further assistance or information, please contact: Pete at 766-4179 after 4 PM (except Wednesdays).

God Bless !
