Santiago joined the GOT Ministries caseload in the fall of 2017. When he first came to see us, the tension in his muscles did not allow him much range of mobility. He did not play with toys or interact with people. Through occupational therapy with GOT Ministries, Santiago gained range of movement and began to reach out for toys. He started feeding himself and he and his family began to learn to use his wheelchair.
Not too long after GOT Ministries started working with Santiago, his family's home burned down. The family has struggled to regain their home over the past year. Additionally, the father has been out of work recently. Making sure Santiago receives the nutrition he needs is challenging. He is in a nutrition center right now to help with this challenge. To be away from his family is hard, but we are grateful he is receiving the nutrition he needs to grow and develop. We are also excited to hear the family may be able to build a new home soon!
Thank you so much to all of our supporters!!
