Day 5. Edson Bila another tale of strength!

Edson Bila, a new child under UPG Portugal´s Sponsoring programme and based in the SVP school, has a sad story to tell, but a very brave one too. He has a problem in his legs which prevents him from walking. To avoid missing classes this 11-year-old child goes to school by himself on a wheelchair. He is a peaceful but sad child. But a yellow t-shirt mana that ALG Trustee Patricia offered him, during her visit in October, brought a huge smile to his face. He was so proud and happy when he discovered out he was going to have a new sponsor!

When he grows up Edson wants to be a teacher. He speaks Portuguese very well and is well behaved!
