Imagine being born without part of your leg. Imagine wanting to be like other children so much, you and your parents devise a prosthesis made out of a coke bottle and a stick!
That is exactly what Anderson and his parents did.
Thanks to Shari Sauer of Common Grounds in Salinas, Anderson's plight was brought to the attention of HKIE. Shari also facilitated the contact between HKIE and prosthesisimbabura.com in Ibarra.
Prosthesis Imbabura fitted Anderson with a leg and foot......now for the first time, with therapy he will truly be able to walk and play like the rest of his friends!
Thanks go to Prosthesis Imbabura, Shari Sauer, Mafer Proano (sister of Board of Director Luis Galarza who facilitated transportation and lodging), Melvin Jones School in Liberdad which will provide therapy, AND all the HKIE supporters who made this miracle possible!
