Kindness is one of the most important values in any human being. It involves actions which can make life changing difference to others; and if we add empathy we can feel as they do, as if through a looking glass, and miracles happen.
That`s how we could describe our champion of today, a man whose skills and compassion, has changed and transformed the lives of hundreds of boys and girls.
Plastic Surgeon Oracio Ruiz, who under the program “Orejitas Bonitas / WBC CARES” has helped many others by performing cosmetic ear surgery for free. This is a procedure to change the shape, position or size of the ears, also known as Otoplasty.
Dr. Oracio Ruiz is recognized as one of the finest plastic surgeons in all of Baja California, where he has his clinic in Tijuana. He performs the best aesthetic procedures with the highest technology and a skilled eye for beauty.
A boxing fan and an affable man who is committed to his work, he is determined to change the lives of his patients. This is why he launched a huge and noble project Orejitas Bonitas, “Pretty Ears”, where for years he has donated one surgery (Otoplasty) per month to low-income children. The reason? To help young ones improve their self-esteem and thus combat bullying.
These are not the only surgeries that the doctor performs for free. For seven years, Dr. Oracio has been helping low-income patients with rhinoplasty, post-cancer reconstruction, abdominoplasty, to name just a few procedures.
Dr. Oracio is clear in pointing out that we can all help others change their lives and thereby elicit many smiles.; however, he admits that the surgeries that give him the most satisfaction are the ones he performs with “Pretty Ears” because of the sheer joy of the children when they see the results of his efforts. “That smile of joy is worth everything!” he says.
Dr. Oración is convinced that his job is to continue helping others and his initiative, for at least four more years, will be to donate one surgery a month for children who need an Otoplasty.
The process is very simple. The only requirement is to send a letter addressed to the doctor, telling him why you want to be part of “Orejitas Bonitas” and uploading a photo to his social networkshttps://www.instagram.com/droracioruiz/?hl=es with this info. Then, the doctor and his team will select a winning boy or girl every month.
Dr. Oracio`s abiding boxing passion and innate decency came from his father. His father taught him that when we share with those who are needy, we contribute to making this world a better. This is a teaching that Oracio has followed as his golden rule of life.
Not only does the doctor have his clinic, but also a boxing gym which he recently opened. Aragon Boxing Club is a place where all children and young people with limited resources can go to train at no cost.
The WBC is extremely proud to greet Dr. Oracio as an ambassador of WBC Cares, because as Nelson Mandela would say: Honesty, sincerity, simplicity, humility, generosity without expecting anything in return, lack of vanity , the willingness to help others forms the basis of the spiritual life of a good person.
Dr. Oracio is an inspiration for all of us because tangible actions change the world. Those that sow the seeds of hope replicate decency and true goodness.
Thank you Dr. Oracio for all your efforts. Welcome to the WBC Cares family!
