Upgrade for Ricardo – 2015


In 2012 we were able to give Ricardo and his family the good news that we found a group of students from St. Jerome’s University in Waterloo, Canada to provide him with a new prosthetic leg every two years.  Because this young boy and his family live in extreme poverty it was almost impossible for them to find help for Ricardo.  So when The Pura Vida Foundation and St. Jerome’s University teamed up to help Ricardo, we were able lift an immense burden from this family’s shoulders.  Not only have we promised Ricardo help with his prosthetic leg, we are also committed to help him with his post education.
