Bloggers On A Mission: Meet Daniel

This week we’re featuring a young scrapper from Chile. Daniel is 6 years old and suffers from spastic diparesis. He’s currently receiving physical therapy through Teletón, a national fundraiser in Chile to help children with disabilities. The good news is that there is a very good chance Daniel will be able to walk some day!


Daniel has been waiting for a sponsor for two years. A caring sponsor just might be the friend Daniel needs to give him inspiration and courage to keep fighting! While Daniel is receiving physical therapy through the efforts of Teletón, he still faces all the normal challenges any other sponsored child faces: school supplies, routine health and dental care, etc. Sponsorship can be vital in helping meet these needs.

Know someone who’d make a great sponsor? Share Daniel’s story with them and help him take a giant step toward success.

Contact us at blog@children.org and we'll be happy to set up sponsorship for Daniel.
