Sylvia Ornella YubahweAge: 4 Published on June 7th, 2020
Meet Yubahwe Sylvia Ornella! This beautiful girl is the firstborn of Nsabumuremyi Sylvestre and Mukandayambaje Clairsse. She has one younger brother and her mother is expecting another child. Yubahwe Sylvia is 3 ½ years old and had Genu Valgum which is a deformity of her knees that makes it difficult for her to walk.She was born with no complications and her parents were not able to recognize any problem until she began to walk, around 1 ½ years old. They took her to the hospital but they did not have the finances to pay for treatment for her knees.
The parents were greatly encouraged that their daughter could receive the treatment she needed for free. The mother shared that before her daughter was accepted to the center, they had lost all hope of Yubahwe Sylvia being able to walk, run, and play. The child was attending preschool, however now the family does not have a way to pay school fees. For fun, Yubahwe Sylvia loves to play in the kitchen with her mom and brother and enjoys any type of game. Love With Actions is thrilled to welcome her and her family to the center.
