Help Benque former Belize Men’s National Football Team player Julio ‘Ata’ Ayala undergo kidney operation

By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Friends and family of former Belize Men’s National Team football player and Traffic Officer Julio ‘Ata’ Ayala are raising funds to help Ayala undergo a kidney operation, according to a post by Cesar Mendez.

Ayala needs a kidney stone removal operation urgently. One of his kidneys is not functioning and the other one has a kidney stone blockage.

On February 29, Ayala underwent an emergency surgical operation in Santa Elena, Peten, Guatemala, as his creatinine level was very high. The doctor told Ayala that he needed another urgent operation to remove the kidney stone that is impairing his kidney from functioning well.

Mendez said it’s a community effort to help Ayala who played not only for the Belize Men’s National Team, but also for Verdes, Juventud Benqueña, Melchor, Mopan Technical High School, and other Benque teams like Benque FC. Up to recently, Ayala was still playing for veteran teams in Benque.

Ayala has also been a football referee.

Any assistance is welcome. Those close to Ayala are hoping to get some assistance from the Football Federation of Belize and from his former teams and teammates.

Ayala’s Heritage Bank account is 7211402.

He may be reached at his personal phone 621-1508 or through Icela at 623-4192.
