Nelly 31 y/o

Birthday: 01.03.1993
With Kasisi since: 01.06.1993

Nelly came to Kasisi when she was only three months old, carrying the painful burden of losing her mother, who left behind eleven orphans. When she arrived, she was blind and paralyzed, as if trapped in a body that wouldn’t respond to her commands. Although she had already overcome much, she still had a long road to health ahead of her. Thanks to continuous care and several complex surgeries, two of which took place far from her homeland in Poland, Nelly’s condition began to improve. She gradually regained control over her body. Today, despite a past that could break the toughest of hearts, Nelly walks, sees, and speaks. Along with Sister Mariola, who has become her pillar of support, she watches TV and sometimes they even go shopping in town—a small pleasure that means the world to Nelly. Even in the face of adversity, she maintains a zest for life. While currently free from illness, the future holds some uncertainties for Nelly. In about three years, a valve replacement in her head will likely be necessary, which will probably take her on another journey to Poland.

How am I doing?

JULY 2023
No one in Kasisi looks forward to our arrival as much as little Nelly, especially when we bring colourful magazines for her. Then, no matter what happens, no one can tear the girl away from her morning newspaper;) Nelly passed the winter in full health. In about 3 years she will undergo a valve replacement in her head. Most likely in Poland.
JULY 2022

She is feeling well and is not ill. He has individual classes with our pedagogue.

JUNE 2021
She is calm and cheerful. She started talking more and has learned to talk on the phone. She keeps in good health but has had a problem with her teeth; 2 front ones had to be removed because she will have a crown put in.
Nelly is happy and doing well.
Good news! Nelly is in Poland and has undergone specialist tests. Thankfully, she won't require invasive neurosurgery, all she needs is get her valves regulated and set up a course of treatment for her epilepsy.
JUNE 2016
She's been having health problems recently. She often faints and we are concerned that the valve in her brain might be causing issues. We are trying to diagnose her. It is possible she will have to travel to Poland again to have the valve replaced.
JUNE 2015
Nelly is walking and talking better and better. Her intellectual development has also picked up. She likes to watch television in the evenings as well as go shopping in town. She even makes her own shopping list, making sure to add her favorite items: magazines, yoghurt and cookies.

Urgent help needed

Cots for Kasisi

The metal cots and worn-out mattresses have lulled generations of Kasisi kids to sleep, but are now in desperate need of replacement.

Our dream is to make the babies’ bedrooms look like a truly homely, safe environment that is associated with warmth. Will you help us make this dream a reality?
