Birthday: December 1, 1998

For several years Vilner attend classes at Wings
of Hope as a day student. He lived in an orphanage near
Wings of Hope when Wings was in Fermathe. That orphanage
did not have any programs for kids with disabilities
and Vilner flourished with the opportunities he
received at Wings of Hope. When Wings moved to
Jacmel the other orphanage recognized that Vilner would
have many more opportunities living at Wings of Hope,
so they transferred him to Wings. Vilner is now a full-time
member of the Wings of Hope family.

Vilner has a physical disability and uses a wheelchair.
He also likes to get out of his chair and crawl. He
has a speech problem and cannot speak clearly, but he
has no problem communicating his needs and wants in
other ways.

He is a very intelligent, funny and personable
young man. He loves to interact with the other kids and
can often be found pushing a line of wheelchairs across
the Wings courtyard. He likes to help the other kids any
way he can. He participates in the school and all the activities
at Wings.

Vilner loves to draw and is a good artist. The staff
at Wings of Hope is looking for ways to increase his artist
talents and foster his creativity
