COMPASSION BLOGGERS POST #1-Helping Emilda get to the World Special Olympics

Being a Special Education teacher and going to the local Special Olympics with students, this assignment touched my heart.

Emilda is an 18 year-old 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 our help to get there.

Pictures and more information about Emilda are available at:
