Visiting the Zoo

Last Thursday, February 28, we went to the zoo with a group of children as part of their plan of learning and socialization activities.

It was a very fun day for everyone, but without doubt the one who enjoyed it the most was Leonel. He is 5 years old and very intelligent, unfortunately he can not walk because he has hydrocephalus and does not have sensation in his legs nor  control of his sphincters- so he will use the wheelchair and diapers indefinitely.

Here in Ayacucho, the zoo is located in a ravine and has ramps for access, but they are very steep and if in the future that doesn't improve, Leonel will not be able to go on his own when he is older, even though he handles very well his wheelchair.

Leonel's mother had him at age 17, she works in a bar every night and after work goes home, has breakfast with Leonel and then takes him to the institution's daycare so she can go to the university where she studies. Leonel is a very happy and intelligent child, has a great memory and his favorite character is the Lightning McQween of the movie Cars.

Leonel and her mother have no support from the rest of their family, they only have each other so they try hard to overcome this situation; in that they have the support of the psychologist whom does accompaniment with both of them. We hope that at the end of her career Vivian - Mama de Leonel - can have a better job and Leonel can enter the education system and access to better future opportunities.
