We are very excited at Cast Your Nets Ministry as this Friday, September 13th, two of our children will be travelling to Davao for life changing medical procedures. Paul John and Princess Claire will go to Tebow Cure Hospital where they will receive prosthetic legs provided by Limb Kind Foundation from Oceanside, NY. The Limb Kind Team will be travelling to Davao to provide and fit prosthetic limbs for disabled children in the Philippines.
Princess Claire is a precious 10-year-old girl that we met at our clinic in February of this year. She is from the city of Bayawan on Negros Island and she was born with two incomplete legs which ended just below her knees. She has lived her whole life with this condition, her family made her leg covers which pad the end of her legs and enable her to stand without feet. This prosthesis will allow her to walk and experience life at the same height as all her schoolmates and friends. We are excited to see the progress she makes with her new prosthetic legs!
Paul John is a 14-year-old boy who lives in the mountain town of Mabinay, Negros Oriental. When he was 9 years old, he was walking home after school and decided to wait for some friends. He sat on a roadside guard railing as he had done many times before, but this time a large sugarcane truck came by and lost control and hit the railing and dragged Paul John for about 100 feet underneath the truck. This resulted in the amputation of his leg very near his hip. When he got out of the hospital, his mother vowed to him that she would become his second leg and do everything she could to help him. We met Paul John and his mother about two years ago and we have looking for the opportunity to get him fitted with a prosthetic leg.
We are so thankful for the opportunity The Tebow Cure Hospital and Limb Kind Foundation have given us to help him and Princess Claire! We want to say Thank You to our donors, with your donations we are able to provide transportation for these children and their guardians to receive this life changing treatment. Stay tuned for follow up reports on these two children when they return!
