Emie Baleña

Emie Baleña lives in Tubudan San Remigio a far flung mountain Village. She is totally blind.  Her mother used to bring her around to beg for food. When we took her to stay in the orphanage and study in sped school, her life-style has changed. She is no longer begging. She learned to do some activities for daily living like washing the dishes, washing her clothes and do many other little things.

Emie has a beautiful voice and she is bright in her class. She earned a gold medal during her graduation in grade VI. Without Liliane Foundation; Emie might still walk the streets of San Jose and other towns begging for their food. Now she can be someday teaching in a sped school for the blind. She stayed in St. Joseph Orphanage for 9 year. They are given all their basic needs of food, medicine, clothing and education.
