In January I visited Angel, a sweet boy who is suffering from a degenerative disease. He is 16 years old and the sweetest boy. His condition is getting worse and unfortunately, it seems like it will get worse in the near future. He is now unable to work and he is loosing strength in his arms.
Angel lives with his mother, older sister and 2 year old brother. They live in a rented room that has an indoor bathroom. Everything they have in this room has been donated to them by various organizations that have tried to help Angel. Recently, Angel received the most wonderful gift of an electric wheelchair. He is extremely happy because it has given him some independence. He started middle school in January and he is able to move around the school without much help.
The family needs to move to a better place. They do not have access to water inside the room. Angel's chair does not fit inside the bathroom. The family has to wash their dishes and clothes in a communal place and the water is extremely dirty. Thanks to some wonderful sponsors, the family will receive another bed, a water filter and a table.
