The community has asked Prostesis Imbabura to provide him with 2 prosthetic legs. HKIE works closely with Prostesis Imbabura and they asked for our help to provide this young man with functioning prosthetics. Also needed are special sleeves to protect his stumps as he has never worn a prosthetic.
Imagine how thrilled he is knowing he will soon be able to walk for the first time in his life!
The community and government have declared this young man adoptable. However, without legs and mobility the chances of adoption are slim. Marcelino loves to be active and with these prosthetics he can more easily move, play and become an active member of society. We hope and pray that this young man will now be able to become part of a loving family.
We will update you on this brave young man's progress!
