About Eliona

elionaEliona was born in 1998. He is quite a character. Full of jokes, laugher and hugs. You can never be bored around Eliona! He had one older brother and sister but both died. The sister fell down from a tree and got a severe cut. She was taken to the hospital, but didn’t survive. The brother died in his sleep. He may have had TB. He was sick for a long time. His mother’s name was Sifael, his father is unknown, and he uses his grandfather’s name Manase. After Eliona’s mother died he had an aunt that took care of him. Before MAD starting helping Eliona, the only meal he had was porridge for breakfast and he only had one pair of trousers and a shirt.

Eliona loves to dance and joke around. He is full of spirit, always smiling, and wants to be a doctor when he grows up! He’s especially interested in helping people with brain damage live a more normal life.
