Never give up! - Polio-afflicted woman maintains early-childhood institution in community

Jamaica Gleaner News "At age 12, Esmina Smith was diagnosed with polio-myelitis, a highly infectious viral disease which mainly affects young children, and hospitalised at the Sir John Golding Rehabilitation Centre for 11 years.

The disease affected her lower limbs and she could barely walk. But, with the rehabilitation Smith received at the facility, she was able to move around with the aid of a stick."
