Hello dear donor, we are really excited to tell you that so far in this year Mahavir Kmina with YOUR HELP and donations has provided 39 children with new legs, giving them the best gift of their lives.You made 39 dreams possible with your donations, and now we are glad to share with you some of this great stories. 

Argenis is a beautiful and smart 11 years old girl that lives in the municipality of Yolombó, Antioquia with her family. When she was 8, she was bitten by a snake while she played in the mountains near her house, when she was bitten, the pain was so so hard that she passed out and by the time her parents found her it was too late and her leg was infected and had to be amputated. After 3 years of this sad event, and two prosthesis from Mahavir Kmina, Argenis can tell this story to the world showing us that the patience, love and companionship of family and friends can make the difference. Now she has returned to school to continue her studies and now mom and dad are able to go to work and provide a better future for her. She got her leg back and with it a new chance to accomplish her dreams, she is now in control of her life and is enjoying every minute of it. She loves to dance, play with dolls and jump the rope.

Julieth a 12 years old girl received in September 9th her fifth prosthesis from Mahavir Kmina, now she lives a regular life using her prosthesis and is an expert using it. When she was only 2 years old she had to be amputated after having gangrene in one leg. She came to Mahavir Kmina with only 7 years old and has grown up with us and with your help. In her own words: ¨My prosthesis gives me the chance to play soccer which I love¨

Do you remember Luis? An amazing father and husband that always work for his family. Since he couldn´t use one of our prosthesis we decided to help him in a different way, and you dear donor, made it possible. 

Luis now has a beautiful horse to go to work and carry all the things he plants, like coffee and bananas. He also takes his little kid to school everyday in his horse that he called ¨Morochito¨ (blackish). They are a perfect team and are always together. 

Thanks to your help, interest and donations this family from Antioquia is living a happy life again since you gave them the chance to work and enjoy every moment in life. 

Thank you again for being a hero and helping us. Please share with the people you love this inspiring story of work, companionship and strength. 

 

The Mahavir Kmina team.

Different kids, different stories, all of them with happy endings!:

Meet Matías, this beautiful boy is now three years old and he got his first prosthesis one year ago. He came back because he needed another one and came with a big smile in his face because now he can play and be happy again. He came with his amazing mother who is always ny his side and supports him in everything. He is one of our little heroes that proves that with a big heart everything is possible.

Meet Francisco, this cute and cheerful boy is 8 years old and comes from the municipality of Necoclí, Antioquia. In 2014 he was amputated due to a snake bite in one of his legs, he and his family couldn´t get on time to the hospital and he was infected and therefore amputated. When he arrived to Mahavir Kmina he was really nervous and anxious because he has never had a prosthesis before, but from the moment he got it, everything changed on his life. Immediately he could walk by himself, he didn´t need any help and showed a big smile on
his face. Now Francisco is playing in the country with the animals he loves and is having again a dignifying and fair life.

Santiago was born in 1999 and because of a deformity he was born with only one leg. Santiago is one of our first beneficiaries and since he was 7 years old he has our prostheses, he continues amazing us and surprising us with all of his skills. He is an excellent bike rider and he also practices skateboarding which is his biggest passion. He has received seven prostheses from Mahavir Kmina and he is ready to continue growing with us and with our help. Santiago is one of our bests examples to show to the world that the disabbilities aren´t phyisical but mental.

Erika is a 8 years old girl that lost his leg in a traffic accident when she and her father were run over by a truck. Even though she suffered this tragic accident she never lost her smile and her innocence. Erika is a spectacular kid that came to Mahavir Kmina to get her first prosthesis in May 2015. She went back to her city full of hope and strength and now she is able to play again and live a dignifying childhood with her family.

Since we started helping people we have given 2694 prostheses for them to be able to walk again. Thank you for being part of this life changing project and helping us to make more children happy! Please continue helping us to change the world, children thank you as well for their new chance in life!!
