You may remember Cristobalina, the 15 year old who was electrocuted so badly that she lost both her hands and part of one of her feet. Her determination and bravery inspire us all as she has overcome multiple surgeries and is now walking with prostheses! She is a very strong and committed young woman and we are honored to be part of her journey.

While she is slowly learning to use her prostheses, she needs physical therapy twice a week in Panajachel and once a month in the capital. Thankfully, all of her physical therapy sessions are free, but she has to pay all of her travel expenses. She lives in a remote village and week after week the transportation costs really add up. She's actually had to miss a few physical therapy sessions because her family just can't afford the cost.

She needs $128/month to cover all transportation costs for herself and a family member to accompany her. Please consider helping Cristobalina. Since she was on the blog we haven't received any donations for her and she has come to our office frequently asking for help. Anything you give for her would be a huge help. Thank you!
