Aleida Pinillo

Aleida Pinillo
At the young age of 17, Aleida lost her left leg below the knee due to a landmine accident on 2008. The accident occurred while she was at work cooking with her mom for the fishermen. When Aleida went to pick up some coconuts to use for lunch, she stepped on a landmine planted approximately 20 meters from the beach. With the support of UFC, she was able to receive a state-of-the-art left leg prosthesis. She can now carry out many physical activities and play with her three-year-old daughter.

She is Angie Paola, a nine-year-old girl who lost her right leg below the knee. When she was walking nearby her house, she stepped on a landmine which caused her serious injuries, but now she can walk and play again the same way she used to do it before the accident. However, the rehabilitation process keeps going, because she still needs help to continue her life by receiving the neccesary adjustments to maintain the quality of the prosthesis during her growing course.
