Chikumbutso is an 11-year-old boy who lives with both parents, grandparents, and sister. He is weak on the left side, walking with a limp and very little use of the right hand. The right side of his face is also paralyzed. For Chikumbutso we are working on skills that will make him more independent, such as dressing himself, bathing himself, washing his clothes and other tasks. When we first saw him, he was not doing any of these things because the family did not expect it of him. He is now beginning to dress himself, though he still needs some help. We are also working on strengthening his right leg so that he can walk better.
