Elmer’s left leg didn’t grow as fast as the rest of his body. At thirteen years of age, his deformity was getting worse. Only an operation could fix it. But with Elmer’s father earning around $6 per day, a surgery seemed impossible.

Through the Special-Needs-Fund, CAM staff in Nicaragua arranged a surgery for Elmer. Since then, his leg has been healing nicely.
