Meet The Children
By Nicole Sergent
Clinic Director, Niños Incapacitados
On Thursday February 15th, at the Real de Chapala we presented five of our children. The attendance was excellent, close to 60 people. We presented each child and their family and explained what we were supporting.
We had a young child from Jocotepec who was born with neurological issues, congenital hipotonia causing swallow and gag reflux problems.
A 10-month old baby from Jocotepec, born with a malformation of her right ear.
A 17-year-old young man from Chapala who had a kidney transplant and his mother was the donor and he will need anti rejection drugs for life.
A 17-year-old girl from Chapala who is suffering from Lupus with renal activity and rheumatoid arthritis who will need very expensive medications for most of her life.
A 5-year-old girl from Ajijic who was born with crossed eyes and after 2 years of trying to resolve with glasses and patches, she had surgery at Hospital Civil and is now a gorgeous little girl who looks completely normal.
We are planning to have more of these meetings where donors, volunteers and anyone interested in our organization can attend and meet these kids and their families and see the impact we have on their daily lives.
We see children the first Wednesday of every month at Centro de Salud in Ajijic at 09:45, in Jocotepec at the DIF office on the first and third Wednesday at 09:45 and in Chapala on the second and fourth Wednesday at the DIF office at 09:30.
