Ian M

Ian was born with two club feet and a dislocated hip and is the youngest in a family of three. His Mother is a housekeeper and his father a fisherman, both without the family support and financial resources to deal with Ian's deformities. With the help of the Ruel Foundation we have begun a series of medical procedures to restore back Ian's ability to walk. Due to the nature of Ian's condition, he is required to have a cast in place for most of the time, immobilizing him, which is frustrating for the boy. It is a difficult time as he can see the other children running and playing in the yard, but the love and attention of our caregivers make it so much easier for him.

At 3 years old he loved listing to music and singing. His favorite song is "Let It Go" - much to the dismay of his caregivers. Ian loves interacting with the children and adults around him, playing games and talking!
He is now 10 years old and living with his family.

    I got the privilege to meet this amazing little man late last year (2015) just before he got his permanent casts off :D He is a bundle of joy and love to those around him. It is so amazing how God heals and restores life to even 'the least of these'. May God bless Ruel foundation with more resources to help more children like Ian. :)
