Unable to communicate in his own words, we tell the story of Gustavo, which spans many years at Eva's Village. If Gustavo ever spoke English, he has forgotten it. He suffers from many disorders, speaks very little at all and understands only Spanish. Living under a bridge and suffering from severe frostbite, Gustavo was rescued by Eva's Village and cared for in our Men's Shelter and Medical Clinic. Doctors feared amputation was the only answer to save his toes, but his feet were bathed and bandaged daily and he recovered. Gustavo has no known family, so Eva's Village has become his home. He is cared for by our staff and receives medical attention for his many debilitating conditions. Surely, he is the most vulnerable of those cared for by Eva's, yet his shy smile and gentle nod hello speaks volumes for the humanitarian care and respect that he has received here at Eva's Village.
