Help children like Benita walk, run, play and thrive again.
Benita’s short life had been filled with pain because of her bowed legs. She couldn’t walk without excruciating pain. She couldn’t use the toilet on her own, or help her mother around the house. Playing with other children was out of the question.
Benita’s life changed when she went to a Hope and Healing International-supported hospital. The doctor attached metal rods onto Benita’s bones to gradually straighten them.
Slowly, after months of recovery and therapy using donated equipment, Benita’s legs grew straight and strong again. The other children don’t laugh at her anymore. Instead, they marvel at her straight legs!
Now Benita runs and plays with the other children. She charges forward in soccer and races her brothers to the well. She’ll start walking to school, something her parents had once thought would be impossible. Benita has a new life!
”Every day I look closely at Benita’s legs and thank God for helping my daughter – through Hope and Healing. I’m so grateful.Sylvia, Benita’s mother
