My name is Noel Rodrigo Elardo, 27 years old of age and unable to walk since birth. I was born with a physical disability to walk. My parents cannot afford an operation that is why I grew up and learned to move around using my hands and knees until I am chaffed and callused. My physical condition has been the major issue of my life since childhood. People who doesn’t understand my situation makes fun of me. I almost drowned in a kiddie pool and they find it funny some even bullied me because of my condition but I look at the bright side of life always. I am the eldest child and I have four younger siblings. When my parents separated, my mother tried to support us on her own while my father started a new family. Since child I have many ambitions, one of them is to get a degree and get a job so I can help my family.
Unfortunately due to my physical condition, I only finished primary level because navigating around the campus is different. When I was in primary school my father used to carry me to and fro, but he got tired and left. The classrooms are more difficult and dangerous to get to because I had to climb up and down stairs. Ever since then I am confined in the house because there is no way I can traverse long distances. I miss out on family outings and occasions but what hurts the most is that I may not be able to realize my ambition.
I am reaching to anyone with a kind heart who may help me in my journey in attaining my ambition. I will be forever grateful for any help. You can donate through PayPal or donate through bank.BDO Acct.003190349082-paz rowena barroga.Thank you & God bless.
