A prosthesis to see Karen`s smile

Karen lives in a rural zone that demands her to pass through unstable surfaces. She was born without one of her legs, because of this Mahavir Kmina and our donors, will help her to receive a lower artificial limb. This way Karen will walk as long as she wants, she could be able to run and the sadness from her face will probably go away.

Our goals are mostly yours

Mahavir Kmina feels proud of our benefactors, thanks to their help we have donated 3.076 low limb prostheses for anyone who needs and wants to walk again. Thanks to our benefactors help, we have earn credibility and people believe in the changes we make.  We believe in the miracles we can make. 

It seems unimaginable that what seems a small or a big donation, can become in a life changing opportunity. On this ocassion we would show you the evolution from one of our beneficiaries, who has received our prostheses since 2007. 

Here is what your big heart has done for Santiago´s life:

Santiago came to Mahavir Kmina when he was 7 years old. His leg was not developed due a congenital marfolmation. He was the best kid from his class in second grade and by the time he adapt to our prostheses, Santiago discovered that they were no bounds. 

Few months later, his mother sent pictures of him climbing a three with our prostheses, riding bike and playing football. From that time he believed in Mahavir Kmina´s miracles. 

Since that first time, Santiago has come to receive a donated prostheses, another 9 times. Nine times that gave him his opportunity to walk again and to believe that his limits are mostly, mental. 

His growing process was done with our help, with the help of the prostheses from when he was 9, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and now, 17 years old. 

Nowadays, Santiago is a young man who is in first year of college. He has different interests now then 10 years ago. He loves to play guitar and listen to music. He also graduated with honors from school.

This kid will always remember what you have done for him, how you have help and believed in him.

A new begginig for the little ginger Amy

Loving hide and seek game!
Loving hide and seek game!

                                                    

The reach of our task has overcome every border. The benefits we give to children’s lives with our prosthetic legs have been heard in so many countries, for instance in Ecuador. Amy, a fourth year old gorgeous girl, came with her grandparents from this neighbor country to obtain her prosthesis. This little ginger girl stole our hearts with her energy and happiness that she gives even though she had a missing part of her body, her leg, because of a congenital malformation in her mother´s pregnancy.

Nevertheless, Amy can keep running to achieve her dreams with the help of a prosthesis given for free from Mahavir Kmina. But this was only possible with the help of YOU, dear donor. With your thoughtful donation we had the chance to give Amy her prosthetic leg.

Thanks to the team we create with you and Amy´s desire, she plays hide and seek without limping, because Amy is a such an energetic girl, that the only difficulty we had was to keep her still and seated in one spot to put her prosthesis on.  She really wants to run and conquer the world! She probably will with this new chance.

Amy and her family are back to their country and can´t wait to see Amy begin Kindergarten and start building her dreams. We feel so happy that we can contribute with children´s smiles.

With all of our gratitude we want to THANK YOU for believing in us and in little princesses like Amy. If you want to give more happiness to children in the world, please consider becoming a regular donor and help us to make it possible.

With great gratitude,

Mahavir Kmina Foundation
