Walter turns 13!

Walter had a huge surprise for his birthday. His sponsor sent him a huge birthday cake to eat with the family.
This is the first birthday cake that Walter has ever had. He was just thrilled!
Walter's father died in 2008 and his mother has struggled to keep them going with just the little money that she earns backstrap weaving. Sometimes it is only $4 US per week.
When we started sponsoring Walter he had been diagnosed as malnourished which was no surprise as $4 us a week provides very little to eat.
Now that he has a sponsor Walter really enjoys going to school. He is only in 4th grade as his family could not afford to send him to school when he was younger but Walter is determined to keep on studying.

Walter also dances in our Folkloric troupe in El Barranco. He really enjoys it.
