We’ve gotten a bit behind on our introductions of new kids at Precious Kids Center. We grew so fast and things got hectic so we have many new friends that have yet to be introduced. Stay tuned for more posts introducing all of our new precious ones.
I first met Joshua and his brothers Limo and Willy at a wheelchair distribution. His mother was a widow who had three boys who were unable to walk and they all have developmental delays. We saw how hard she was struggling to provide for her boys in the best way that she could and we started helping her.
We were able to help Limo and Joshua get surgeries to try to improve the range of motion in their knees. His older brother Limo is currently training with cobbler near his home to be able to learn a skill that could bring him some income. His other brother, Willy, had more severe disabilities and was unable to walk or talk. The older he got, the more difficulties he had and he passed away in November 2017.
After a few years after she showed up at the compound one day. One of her friends had told her about a school in Wamuini that helps children like Joshua. She was surprised to find that it was me that she was waiting for and I knew that it was the right time to Joshua to move into PKC. Joshua is constantly giggling and smiling. He can’t walk, but he is able to get all around the compound independently.
