Dear Donor,

Donating to ANIQUEM not only means giving a smile to one of our children, it also means forming part of our big family. With every donation we can finance the treatment for one of our kids that have suffered from severe burns. Their integral rehabilitation includes physiotherapy, occupational therapy, compressive garments, psychological treatments and the reintegration into the society. 

One of the 7 children we were able to help thanks to your donation to our project "Rehabilitation for 7 Burned Children in Peru" is Juan: "Hola, my name is Juan and I was born in Iquitos, a small village in the jungle of Peru. When I was 6 years old, while I was sleeping, my bed caught fire. My dad rescued me directly and took me to the hospital. I had to stay in the hospital for almost 2 month. All that happened 4 years ago, now I am 10 years old and I am feeling much better thanks to ANIQUEM. Here, I am receiving my therapies and because of that my scars look much better. I really like to go to ANIQUEM, although it takes us almost 2 hours to arrive because right now I life on a mountain outside the city without electricity or running water. I enjoy playing football in the garden in ANIQUEM, especially with my younger brother and I always participate in the activities and partys they are organizing. Thank you so much for your help!"

Juan is a brave and happy kid. He is always coming for his therapies on time although he lives quite far away from our rehabilitation center. His mum is really concerned about him and continues with his therapies at home, massaging his skin, applying the creams and making sure he is wearing the compressive garments if necessary. This is very important for the integral rehabilitation and because of that we always explain to the families how to do the therapies at home. Their living situation is difficult as they don´t have electricity or running water.

Another child we would love to benefit with the project is Jose: Read more about him in the link below, donate on Wednesday, 12 July and GlobalGiving is donating 50% more!!! Don´t miss this opportunity: This way we will be able to improve the life quality of Jose substantially and give him a new future!

Thank you so much for helping Juan, Jose and many other children with severe burns in Peru! 

If you have any questions concerning our work or if you would like to visit our rehabilitation center to see our work yourself, just let us know!

We send you our best wishes and hope you have a great day!

Dear Donors,

Thank you so much for your support to finance the rehabilitation of 7 burned children in Peru. One of the children you are supporting is Cesia, who is going to tell her story herself (we translated it in English for you though):

Hola, my name Cesia and I am 8 years old. Over 2 years ago my three sisters and I were sleeping at home and suddenly there was a big fire. My mom told me that a candle fell down which started the fire. She just had gone outside to clean our clothes and when she came back it was already too late: everything was on fire. A lot of the parts of my body were burned and it hurt really really much. But that was a long time ago; know I am feeling a lot better. After the fire everything changed. We had to move to my uncle's place in Lima to go to ANIQUEM. I really enjoy being here, we can play in the garden and after every time my skin feels better. But I would like to go back to my home Chiclayo, so when I am old enough I can study medicine there and help many people.

Cesia and her three sisters are receiving the treatments needed for an integral rehabilitation in ANIQUEM, which means physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological treatment and the reinsertion into the society. The treatment takes on average 3 years but as Cesia and her sisters are severely burned, it can take several years longer. Especially the psychological treatment is very important, as we are able to cure the external scars but curing the internal scars is a lot more difficult. Cesia and her sisters are a great example of our work: They are not ashamed of showing their scars in public and they are doing the necessary treatments at home so that their scars already look much better. 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. 

Cesia is a really special person and I am sure you would like her if you would have the chance to get to know her. Besides her treatments in ANIQUEM, she needs a new prothesis to be able to walk again. Just enter the link at the end of the email to get to know more about this special case. 

Thank you again so much for your support - thanks to you children like Cesia can receive their treatments here in ANIQUEM!
