Story

Wisdom Madisa was born with congenital hemimelia which led to the amputation of his leg at the beginning of 2014. A year later, he was fitted with his first Jumping Kids walking solution and has been part of the project ever since.

Before receiving his prosthesis, Wisdom could not play, or climb around with his young cousins and had lots of questions about his ‘different leg’. After becoming a Jumping Kid, his questions stopped. Now, he is just a ‘normal’ four year old with a super-cool leg.

Wisdom attends a mainstream pre-school where he enjoys playing Rugby, or just running around with his friends. He also loves music and is very excited to learn to swim this year.

The best thing about being part of the Jumping Kids family, according to Wisdom’s mom, is the emotional support received from the team and meeting other parents facing similar challenges.
