Chisomo Paul Receives Prosthetic Leg
Chisomo Paul, a double orphan, became an Agape Student in 2014 after being involved in a car accident where he lost his right leg. After living many years on crutches and will a left leg that was also slowly deteriorating, Chisomo found new hope when a gracious donor sponsored his trip to a Lilongwe hospital and to receive his new prosthetic. Upon his return to Agape House Limbe, Chisomo wrote with great gratitude to his sponsor that, “I can now walk like all of my friends.”
Mark your calendars! Agape’s second annual 5k run is right around the corner on April 21st. Join us in raising funds for our program and in celebrating the International Day of the Street Child (April 12).
