This is Maylin, a 6 year old born with cerebral palsy. HKIE encountered her and her family on our trip to the Otavalo/Cotacachi area last month.
She recently had the casts removed from her legs...in an attempt to straighten them. We managed to contact a local physical therapist, Jazmin Encalde, who is happy to work with HKIE and Maylin and her family.
Maylin has her follow up with her doctor July 27 at which time he will issue the therapy orders and Maylin can begin her therapy. With lots of hard work on everyone's part, Maylin may soon be able to stand up and walk for the first time in her life!
Many thanks go to Elizabeth Anderson and Linda Blizzard for helping HKIE facilitate our efforts in this area.
And thanks to the continued support of all our followers HKIE can provide this therapy and also speech therapy for this little girl so full of joy.
