About Amanuel

Amanuel and his brother, Habte, both believe that their leg deformities are a result of contracting malaria. Amanuel is a bit more shy than his older brother. He hid his face when I asked him what he wants to be when he grows up. He finally answered that he would like to become a doctor.

Amanuel and Habte both live at CBR (Community Based Rehabilitation), a place for kids with disabilities, where they learn their own potential and can play with other kids who have similar conditions. Amanuel is in his first year of school, and he is most looking forward to going back to school after surgery.

His shyness subsided when I was "not looking". He started singing and laughing with his friends. Amanuel needs surgery for both ankles and legs. He has a lot of trouble walking on his own, but that does not stop him from playing soccer. The caregiver from CBR that brought the kids to CURE, tells me that he will play all day long. Let's keep these brothers in our hearts and prayers as they embark on this journey to healing together.
