The first building on the new Free High School campus in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, was celebrated in an opening ceremony yesterday, and we were pleased to be in attendance!

This is Aya, from the 2016 #Gishwhes “Change a Life” item. (https://www.crowdrise.com/change-a-life-khoulouds-story )
She’s the little girl with spinal bifida whose family fled Syria. For years, her sister has had to carry Aya everywhere because the family could not afford a wheelchair or health care.

The Gishwhes team went to France and met with her family. We got to share the good news that Aya will be receiving the best medical care and a new wheelchair, and her family will be receiving a car to help transport her to medical appointments. This is all thanks to the generous efforts of you Gishers…
