Mapalo came to Kasisi as a newborn. The right side of her body was paralyzed and her jaw deformed, preventing her from fully closing her mouth. Following extensive rehabilitation, many of her symptoms improved. Mapalo has even started to walk. She does not speak but she’s learned sign language to communicate with others. She is very bright and outgoing and is always smiling. She enjoys being in a group and is very popular with other children.
Santa Claus never had it easy in Kasisi 😉 Over 230 children live here. Sister Mariola has already rushed to his aid and is quietly preparing presents!
Many of us still leave a free seat at the Christmas Eve table. Let one of our children sit at it this year (at a distance, but very much for real) and invite them to the table today!
