Emilda is an 18 year-old Compassion sponsored child with the mental capacity of a three year-old. She lives in a squatter community in the Philippines. And she's FAST!
In 2009 Emilda competed in the Philippine Special Olympics and she performed well enough to qualify for the World Special Olympics in Athens, Greece this Summer. But she needs your help to get there.
Emilda's parents are unable to pay her way to Greece and neither is the Philippine government. Her beginning need to get there was $19,837. Thanks to people just like you all she needs now is $10,000. A gift in any amount will help.
You have the opportunity to send Emilda to the World Special Olympics! Just think what this would mean to Emilda and her family.
