😊 Andrea and her 2-year-old daughter Milena ready to go home after the child’s physiotherapy session. Milena was born with Down’s syndrome and had heart surgery. “She was like a doll... she could only move her eyes... All the movements that a baby should know how to do, she had to learn. And now she’s daring.” Andrea, her proud and loving mother. #ThisAbility #Bolivia © UNICEF/UN0119257/Alanes
