Give Prostheses to 35 Maimed Colombian War Victims

Thanks for being part of Carlos' life!

Carlos Amaya, is one of our beneficiaries touched by your kind heart. He lost his left leg due to a grenade explosion. He was only 7 years old when the accident happened. (More information attached)

Thanks to you he can walk and play like any other kid. He is now 13 years old and he keeps growing, having a healthy and happy life full of wonderful opportunities.

Every year he needs his prosthesis to be repaired or changed. He is a fast growing kid, so his prosthesis must be adjusted to fulfill his new height and weight. 

Please keep being part of Carlos’ life and many other children like him.

We really appreciate your generous support.
