Meet Jecinta, a 12-year-old friendly, talkative, and funny girl. She is the youngest in her family of three children. Currently, Jecinta is a student in grade 5, and in school, she likes reading and playing with her friends even though her legs limits her ability to play as well as her peers. Jecinta’s mother is a single mother who works temporary jobs on neighbor’s farms, clothes washing, and other available jobs.

Jecinta was born healthy, but her mother noticed a sudden bowing of her legs when she was one. Jecinta’s mother took her toddler to a nearby hospital where plaster was applied to her legs to prevent spreading of her condition. However, since then, it has continued to worsen and has been affecting Jecinta’s mobility. At this point, she cannot stand upright and play with friends as she would like to.

Fortunately, Jecinta is scheduled to undergo surgery on July 19th to correct her legs. This treatment will allow her to walk like other friends, play with them, and continue with her studies, all of which can improve her self-esteem.

“I would wish for support for my child because I cannot be able to afford the hospital bills,”Jecinta’s mother asks.
