We are so excited to share with you David's great news! This active and energetic 7th grader, who loves to ride his bikeeverywhere, but couldn't due to a terrible accident that shattered his leg, now has the chance to ride his bike to school again, with his new leg! 

With your help Mahavir Kmina provided David with a new prosthesis, and any other he will need when he grows up and his body changes. The new leg is allowing him to ride his bike again, and go to school every day! This is not only giving David the opportunity to live a normal life and continue walking towards his dreams, but will help him get his self-esteem back and recover his independence and happiness.

Thanks to you, David can now achieve more goals and dream about a brighter future.
