Karen is from Ibarra the capital of Imbabura, a province in the Andes of Ecuador.
She was born with some problems, among which was partial paralysis.
We were contacted by Protesis Imbabura to see if HKIE could help this young lady cope better with life by getting her some special leg braces to allow her to walk.
Here she is learning to walk with them , on her way to a better life.
Thanks to Protesis Imbabura and our donors!
