Aicha       Cote d'Ivoire

There is no way of judging success when it comes to this program, we recently found out that Aicha is inflicted with several syndromes which prohibit us from doing corrective surgery.  Immediately we were disappointed, then realized that Aichas story is a success even without the surgery.  Her host family addressed her malnourishment and she has gained weight and is healthier, she has had extensive dental care ridding her body of the decay that was present and she has touched the lives of many!  We are preparing to send her home but it is our desire to make sure she goes home with some means of mobility.  We are raising funds for a wheelchair for Aicha if you would like to help please consider donating by clicking on the link below.
