Fabricio is happier because of your support!

The biggest smile!
The biggest smile!

When you meet Fabricio for the first time it is very unlikely that you can never ever forget his cute and sweet big smile. He is giving big steps to overcoming a trauma caused by the accident when he pulled down the cord of a kettle and all the hot water fell over him causing burns in his little head, back, intimates parts and legs.

I love the connection he has with her mama, it just took me few minutes to realize how much they love each other and understand the beautiful bond between them. Fabricio’s mum support in therapies have been so important in the progress of his integral rehabilitation.

Months ago little Fabricio was chosen to be the image of a great campaign we launched with a company. People there just loved his cute and big smile -as all of us-, I think everyone of us that have seen it react like that doesnt it? Because he is a symbol of all our kids: their strength and the way they learn to see life again is what we love to see in our patients. We are so proud of them!

One of this company managers told me that he never thought that our kids could smile like this due the situation they are living. So I explained him that’s the goal of our work. We want all of our children have a second chance to enjoy life the same way they did it before -even better!-

But there is still a big challenge to overcome, something that can make this little one happier than he is now: Fabricio has to receive several therapies and use special garments to improve motion on his arms. We know there is a long way to go but we feel happy to count on all of you to trough this path.

He already knows that there are kind people whom are supporting his treatments. And when I told him that I wanted to make a photo to send it to all these people, he made this sign - “A kiss" he said!  

Thank you so much again for helping us to make Fabricio a happier little boy!

Besides him, there are other kids that urgently need our help. You can help us to change their lives and give them the integral rehabilitation they deserve - click on the link below to read their story. Thank you so much and have great day!

Dear donor,


Thank you so much for your support to finance the rehabilitation of 7 burned children in Peru. Our team, kids and all their families are thankful with you, for your generosity and support. Without your help we couldn’t have come this far.

Today I want to tell you about one of our kids:
I met little Luciana in a christmas party for all our kids. She was really cute and shy as well, when someone wanted to say hello, she quickly hugged her mom's leg and hid her face.

Luciana’s mom told me that she started to be like that after the accident and because her scars.Just months ago, while she was running in the house accidentally fell  into a pot of hot food that was on the floor. -Here in poor areas it is common to put the pots on the floor so they can cool down the food inside-.

Mom and dad do their best to help and support our little girl, but they have a difficult situation: Unfortunately in our country agricultors are not so well paid, and they are from a little place so far away in highlands. Even this situation they never gave up and they decided to bring her to our centre. When she has appointments comes with mom and next time comes with dad. They are always concern about all the advices and therapies they have to do when they come back home.

Lucianita is receiving the treatments needed for an integral rehabilitation in ANIQUEM, which means physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological treatment, reinsertion into the society and special lycra garments to get better the scars in her body. Of course their skin will never look like it was before but what we want to achieve is that these kids are able to live a normal life again.

Even when scars are not in face, kids know that they are gonna living all their lifes with those in their bodies and each day when they see them it’s a reminder of a traumatic day. Our mission its to convert this scars into hope and everyday we work so hard to make this possible.

Months have passed and Lucianita is now less shy and can talk to you without hiding her beautiful face in something or someone. She is a lovely girl with a sweet voice and is gaining more confidence in herself. Now when she comes to ANIQUEM sometimes stops to visit me in the office and even ask me for paint something she especially choose. She loves sitting there and sing while paints. This moment is really gold for me so I wanted to share some photos with all of you.


I'm sure you would love her if you could meet her.

Thank you again for all your support. We’re really blessed to count on you!!!

 

Team ANIQUEM.

She really loves painting!
She really loves painting!

Thanks to you, Miroslav is getting a better life!

Dear friend,

Thank you so much for your support to finance the rehabilitation of 7 burned children in Peru. Our little patientes are doing their best job to receive and follow therapists indications! Here in ANIQUEM everyone is just happy to see them and bring back memories how these kids were at the beginning and how they are now. We couldn’t have come this far without you!!!

Today I would like to introduce you one of the children you are supporting. His name is Miroslav, he’s 3 years old and lives with aunties and his grandmother.

Last year, one night while his aunt was cooking he asked for bread. Unfortunately, while he enjoyed his bread, a piece fell into a pot of hot food that was on the floor. -Here in poor areas it is common to put the pots on the floor so they can cool down the food inside- Seeing his bread inside, the little boy introduces his hand into the hot pot to remove it from the inside, action that  caused severe burns on his face, right arm and hand.

At first their parents used to bring Miroslav to the center, but after a while they began to have some serious relationship issues. So his mother left him in the care of his grandmother and aunts. Despite the difficult situation facing, this little boy is doing his best with physical and occupational therapies, but still has a long way to go with the psychological ones because he must overcome many traumas by be growing up without his parents.

Miroslav is a very sweet and playful child (always jumping around there)and I am sure you would fall in love with him instantly if you would have the chance to get to know him. So to give thanks and say goodbye this little man asked me send you this photo of a turtle that he made with “so much love and all my powers” as he told me. Did I forget to mention he is a superhero?

Thank you again for all your support this year. We’re really blessed to count on you!!!

Best wishes in this new year!

He is a brave kid.
