Upendo

There are seven children in the “Building a Caring Community” project who are waiting for walkers.  Upendo, who is in the Karanga I day center, is one of them.  When I first met her, she could not walk independently.  A few minutes later, I lowered the handholds of my walker aUpendoll the way down, thinking she might hold them and slowly try walking.  Well, she just took off walking at a fast clip, round and round the room.  Not only that, but her gait looked pretty normal to me!  Her mother volunteers at the center and was quite excited to actually see this.  As many of us know,  it sometimes takes so little to get children “going” if the resources are available.
