A new leg is a new life!

Nervous but yet excited with his new prosthesis
Nervous but yet excited with his new prosthesis

Juan Esteban is a 9 years old kid that now couldn´t be happier.

Thanks to your help and donations we could give him a new prosthesis and he is walking again, by himself and without crutches. 

When Juan came to Mahavir Kmina he was a little bit scared and nervous, he couldn´t believe that he could walk again and receive a prosthesis. After the traumatic event that  caused his  grandmother´s dead and him loosing a leg he became a little afraid but still was a loving and cute kid. 

With this new prosthesis Juan will become more confident about himself, he´ll be independent again and will help his mother with his little brother and she will have more time to work and provide for a better future and more opportunities for these amazing kids. 

The chance to walk again for a kid is the chance to believe that there is good in the world and that still there are people willing to help and make a change. This beautiful family is really grateful and touched by your help, Juan is going to go to school, learn a lot, play and have a regular kid life, which is happy, healthy and full of joy. He will pursue his dreams of becoming a professional footbal player and without this wouldn´t even be a possibility.

 

From the Mahavir Kmina team we say THANK YOU, you are the game shifter for this family and for this kid that deserved another chance. Please consider becoming a regular monthly donor so you can help changing the world and share with us more achievements. 

With gratitude!

Isabella walks for the first time!

``I love my new leg`` said Isabela to his mommy when trying to walk for the first time. Mommy was so happy she couldn`t stop smilling, she was just amazed.

Thanks to your donations Isabela is walking for the first time and 2016 is going to be an amazing year for her and her mother. Little Isa was born with a deformity that made one of her legs shorter than the other and she  couldn´t walk by herself. Also her fingers were together and she couldn`t develop fine motor skills. 

Even though Isa had some health issues she was never sad or felt different, she played and laughed like every other kid but needed a little bit of help to grow even happier, find some health and mostly have independence while performing daily routines. 

Now Isa went back to her house in San Andrés Island and is ready not only to learn to walk perfectly but also to run, swim and jump as high as she can. Her mother is going to work again and provide for a better future for both of them. In a few years Isa will be able to go to school and study and will do it by herself. 

You, the donor, made this dream possible, Isa and her mother are now happy an living a fair life. Thank you for changing their life. 

Remember that you can become a recurring monthly donor to help even more people!!  

Thank you again!!

Dreams of walking came true in 2015

She looks just gorgeous with her new leg!

¨Mom I´m walking again and I can wear the dress you gave me¨ said Carolina when she got her prosthesis one week ago.

Since she was amputated she had to sit all day long in a wheelchair, she had to quit school and spent the entire day sitting at home. Caro, as her friends call her, is an 11 years old kid that lost her leg due to a cancerous bone tumor that started two years ago. 

Even she was struggling and received chemotherapy to beat cancer, it took away one of her legs, but not with it the strength and determination to keep fighting and living. 

Now, after 9 months of being amputated and 7 months of not having a sign of cancer in her body she is more than ready to finally recover and walk again. 

When she came to Mahavir Kmina she was a little bit shy, quiet and was even scared, but when Caro received the prosthesis she became powerful, trusted hersefl again and off course since she is super girly she was always looking at the mirror and thinking about the way she would look in the fancy and beautiful dresses she has. 

At first when she had her prosthesis she had to practice a lot, but Caro was more than determined to control every inch of her body because in her own words ¨I´m gonna practice again and again until I´m able to walk to school all by myself¨

This is only one of the many stories and lifes you have helped us change throughout this year, like Caro there are too many kids and warriors that deserve a recognition, but here you are also the superstar and the hero, you and your donations made this dream came true and we would like to thank for that. If you would like to continue helping us and helping more kids to walk again we invite to sign up for a monthly recurring donation. 

More than grateful and wishing a merry christmas and a happy new year full of blessings, 

Feeling scared and anxious for her prosthesis!
