A young Ukrainian girl is now able to walk after a Christian ministry paid for her surgery and recovery.
According to ChristianToday.com, Samira, who is now seven years old, was born with a club foot and was unable to walk. She was also constantly in pain.
Samira’s parents, however, were poor and could barely scrape money together for food, let alone an expensive surgery.
"I feel pain because she is my child," said Samira’s mother, Nora. "I can't look at her without crying. But I can't do anything for her, I can't pay for the surgery that would allow her to walk and run and play like other children."
Thanks to Christian Broadcasting Network’s Orphan Promise and the generous donations of Christians, Samira was able to get the surgery she needed.
She is now a healthy, normal seven-year-old who, in the words of her mother, can “do everything.”
"I can walk and run," Samira said. "I can play with other children. I even take dancing lessons at my school. Thank you for giving me straight legs."
