Hello, my name is Carlos Urbáez. I was born in Venezuela. I am an Independent National Radio, Film and Television Broadcaster and Producer. We currently live in Colombia.

 Our life changed with the arrival of our son, which is why I left with my family from our country. We wanted to give him a future, which is why we migrated even without a passport. We have 2 years in Colombia, doing independent work, in areas that I had never known: construction, maintenance, boiler, etc.

Because I do not have the PEP, which is the permission given to Venezuelans to be able to enjoy a job and social security, (they do not give it to people without passports for more than 2 years), I have been forced to work in places without any kind of work relationship, without social security and without anything that generates benefits for me and my family.

On Sunday, December 13, I had an accident in which I fractured the 7th vertebra of my spine, losing the mobility of my arms and neck, since the fragment presses on some nerves in the affected area.

From that moment on it is impossible for me to do any kind of activity, I even need my wife's help to bathe, dress and any other activity where I need to move my arms. 

The surgeon who treated me gave me absolute rest, for an indefinite period of time. Explaining that because of the delicacy of the area I can do absolutely nothing, since I run a high risk of becoming paralyzed. 

I was referred to a Neurosurgeon to do the pertinent post-op exams. The operation is valued at over 25,000,000.00 Colombian pesos (over $6,000) but since I do not have EPS, I have no way to cover the costs of the operation.

I beg for your help, without a job, with a small child and taking care of me, my wife can't work and I need that operation to get my life back!

I came to Colombia to raise my family, please help me do it! I want to live, to carry my child, to run, to be able to raise my face and see the sky, please, I beg your help!

I would be very happy if you would use the [Collaborate by Sharing] button to share my project!
