They’re students at the San Manuelito School for children with severe disabilities in San Ramon, Peru, the first school we assisted and the namesake of our organization, Amigos de San Manuelito. Their braces were donated by students and parents of Kauri Sue Hamilton School for children with severe disabilities in Riverton, Utah. The students at Kauri Sue have outgrown them and their parents generously gave them to us to take to Peru.
So thanks to the efforts of parents, teachers, and therapists on two continents, both girls are walking. Congratulations, little girls. Felicitaciones, ninas. This is why we go. Por eso vamos.
