My name is Mary. I am 13 years old. I have a disability.
Polio affected one of my feet, the right. I now use crutches and a PET (personal energy transport) to move around. This disability limits my movement. I fall down very often. I cannot run and play with my friends as I would want to. It makes me different from others.
I came from Port Loko District but now live with WESOFOD (Children in Crisis' partner in Sierra Leone).
My mother abandoned me. I wish she would come around one day and see how I have grown up.
