Imagine having feet so misshapen you cannot wear shoes, can't run or play, having to look forward to severe knee, hip or back problems. That was little Elian's future.
Elian is almost 6 years old from the Salinas area on the coastal area of Ecuador, Santa Elena Province.
He is currently undergoing pre-surgery therapy to prepare his feet for his corrective surgery this next month.
Without you, our loyal donors, this treatment and therapy would not be possible for this little guy. He and his family are so thrilled he will now have the chance to live a productive life!
Thanks to our local coordinators Luis Galarza and Sister Veronica Kim for arranging his treatments and surgery at Roberto Gilbert Hospital in Guayaquil.
And of course, thank you all for your continued support!
