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!
