Birthdate: 2007

Alisha and her sister Nirjala came to us immediately after the earthquake in May 2015. Alisha continues to be a watchful older sister, something she has been doing since they lost their parents. She is a funny little girl who laughs at her imaginary world, always smiling. We took her to speech therapy but found out her ear drum has been damaged so that lack of hearing was causing problems with her speech. She had her ear surgery in November and is doing well. With this help, she should start doing better in school.
