Rohan, standing tall at school in St. Lucia
11-year-old Rohan received spine surgery this year which gave him back his ability to walk -- but also his confidence and happiness. When Rohan first met WPP in St. Lucia, he barely spoke and tears of insecurity and despair welled up in his eyes as his mom told Dr. Eric Gordon of his steady decline and how he had started wetting his pants at school.

Now he's newly energized, confident, and exuberant as he celebrates A Life Of... walking, healing, and going back to school:
“WPP came to help me. Now that the ‘bubble’ is gone from my back, I go to school and walk to the beach every Saturday. It is a long way but I can walk the whole way and I build sandcastles and I dig in the sand and I sunbathe with my friends. 

My life is so different. I also am doing good in school now. I am studying for some big exams in June and study every day. When I grow up I want to be the Governor General or the Minister of Education. I want people to hear my voice. I want to make sure bullies do not hurt other kids. Thank you so much and all of the people at WPP for all you did for me. I am so happy now.” 

- Rohan, 11 years old, St. Lucia

It's thanks to the support of WPP's medical volunteers, suppliers, and donors just like you that children like Rohan can look forward to A Life Of... healing, love, and promising futures.

But the need in low-resource countries we serve in the Eastern Caribbean and Central America is great - there are thousands of children who need complex surgeries and we'd like to help more children like Rohan.
