Nick is turning nine years in the coming days, he is counting on a calendar to see how much longer left for his birthday. He arrived to CRAN two years ago, as he couldn’t have the opportunity to attend school; he has not received the adequate education which a child of 9 years should receive.

Nick receives personalized support from his therapist and teacher Monica, he says:  "She is my favorite teacher".  Thanks to the compromise and devotion of people like her, Nick has had a major progress emotionally and academically.

 Nick likes to learn from animals, colors and he is already starting to write his first words. With didactic activities, like puzzles, figures and drawings, Monica shows him how to identify animals, pick the colors and write his name. Meanwhile, Nick has shown progress in their language and speaking, pronounced better, identify the letters of the alphabet and learn new words every day.

 This is the case of one of the many children we serve in CRAN. Today children as Nick can have people like Monica, thanks to YOUR unconditional support.

Thank you very much for your compromise with the education of children in Colombia!

Thank you for CRANsform!

Once again thank you very much to our friends who support children in CRAN Foundation. Is very important for us to have such generous people like you supporting the cause. This is the story of Wendy, one of the beneficiaries of the project:

Wendy is 3 years old, she was born with an umbilical hernia, she always said she was very painful and complained a lot of a severe stomachache. Thanks to YOUR SUPPORT Wendy´s surgery was performed and was a success. At first she was nervous, but after the recovery she was so much happier, cheerful and released from the severe pain he suffered for so long. Besides the stomach problem, Wendy also suffers of equine foot, she used her splints however, by the use, they were often damaged; by orthopedic orders she has another surgery, so she could walk properly. At the beginning of the therapies she felt very uncomfortable, but over time she realized I could walk much better and was very satisfactory for her.  

On behalf of CRAN children we want to thank you for your unconditional support through these past months.

Thank you for still CRANsforming lives!

First of all, thank you very much to all the support to CRAN to overcome the challenge, thanks to the unconditional support, our project was ranked 36 (in a ranking of 229) now we become a part of the Global Giving community!

With your support, we could continue working for the improvement of the health of Colombian children in CRAN. During December 2012 and January 2013, over 300 children were benefited in more than medical appointments, specialized exams, occupational therapy and medication. 

 One of the project beneficiary is Cristina and here is her story: 

 Cristina is three years old, she is with us since 2012. She joined CRAN for negligence in her care. Due to a congenital problem in her limbs, she walked with difficulty. To correct this dysfunction, on January 23 she had a surgery called elongation bilateral Achilles heel. For two or three months, Cristina will be cast. With exercises and therapies she will walk normally and can run and play with other children. Thanks to your support on the GlobalGiving project, we could cover all expenses, medicines and hire someone to take care Cristina permanently during recovery.

In January, two other children, Peter of three years old, and Maria, also of three years, were operated and successfully evolve.

This is one of many stories of children who have been benefited from your contribution. Once again, thank you very much for CRANsform lives!
