Children smiling, walking and being happy!

Different kids, different stories, all of them with happy endings!:

Meet Matías, this beautiful boy is now three years old and he got his first prosthesis one year ago. He came back because he needed another one and came with a big smile in his face because now he can play and be happy again. He came with his amazing mother who is always ny his side and supports him in everything. He is one of our little heroes that proves that with a big heart everything is possible.

Meet Francisco, this cute and cheerful boy is 8 years old and comes from the municipality of Necoclí, Antioquia. In 2014 he was amputated due to a snake bite in one of his legs, he and his family couldn´t get on time to the hospital and he was infected and therefore amputated. When he arrived to Mahavir Kmina he was really nervous and anxious because he has never had a prosthesis before, but from the moment he got it, everything changed on his life. Immediately he could walk by himself, he didn´t need any help and showed a big smile on
his face. Now Francisco is playing in the country with the animals he loves and is having again a dignifying and fair life.

Santiago was born in 1999 and because of a deformity he was born with only one leg. Santiago is one of our first beneficiaries and since he was 7 years old he has our prostheses, he continues amazing us and surprising us with all of his skills. He is an excellent bike rider and he also practices skateboarding which is his biggest passion. He has received seven prostheses from Mahavir Kmina and he is ready to continue growing with us and with our help. Santiago is one of our bests examples to show to the world that the disabbilities aren´t phyisical but mental.

Erika is a 8 years old girl that lost his leg in a traffic accident when she and her father were run over by a truck. Even though she suffered this tragic accident she never lost her smile and her innocence. Erika is a spectacular kid that came to Mahavir Kmina to get her first prosthesis in May 2015. She went back to her city full of hope and strength and now she is able to play again and live a dignifying childhood with her family.

Since we started helping people we have given 2694 prostheses for them to be able to walk again. Thank you for being part of this life changing project and helping us to make more children happy! Please continue helping us to change the world, children thank you as well for their new chance in life!! 

Erika happy with her new life!
