Angelina's Story


Angelina Awien Malek is a young woman in South Sudan who had been crippled by polio and  walked three miles on her knees to get to school. Each morning at 6:00, she would begin walking in order to get to school by 9:30. 

Working with Polio Children, Monroe Wheelchair and Rotary as well as other donors, BMISS was able to provide Angelina with a hand-peddled tricycle and a wheelchair to enable her to travel to school.

Angelina cried with joy and gratitude when Sebastian gave them to her. "My future is bright and clear," she said. She couldn't believe her eyes.
