Jesus is a 12 years old who suffers from motor impairment disability and cerebral palsy and does not own a wheelchair. The purpose of this fundraising campaign is to collect enough money to buy him a special wheelchair for his need, so his family can move him around easily.
To tell you more about Jesus situation, he is 12 years old but has the appearance of a 5 years old boy, he weighs 15 kilograms (33 pounds) and is 1 meter (3.28 ft.) tall. He lives with his dad and grandmother (dad's mom), when he was born his mother left him and his sibling because she said she was not going to deal with a boy with those problems. This is why he now lives only with his dad and siblings.
He attends a Special Education Center, this is where I met him, when I visited the school, he was using another student's chair, because she was not attending classes. The teacher is a nice lady who really does a lot to help them, but the economic situation does not let her and me do much specially about the wheelchair, the center has asked the government for a chair, unfortunately they have not been able to fulfill this need.
This boy lives in a small town in Mexico, called Osumacinta located in the State of Chiapas, about an hour away from the capital of the State (Tuxtla Gutiérrez).
I really hope you can help this boy live a better life by having his own wheelchair and thank you all in advance for your support.
