|Meet Yeisel and her Family |
Yeisel, eleven years old, lives with her parents and four siblings in a modest house on the coffee farm where her father works. Last year she suffered a serious accident. The damage to her spine affected her mobility and now, even though she can walk, her gait is uneven and she must soon undergo surgery and fittings for a brace. Although her once-a-week physical therapy session is provided at no cost to the family, they are still responsible for the expenses of transportation and medicine. Pictured here are Yeisel, her younger brother Sebastian, her little sister Keisel, and her mother Norissa. Norissa expressed her gratitude for the help and support from FPI (The Handicap Center) and for the monthly bags of food from Buenos Vecinos.
