Zsolt (10 years old, Sarkad)

We met Zsolt at the Orthopedic Clinic of Budapest.
The plural is correct, az Csilla and Ben, representing the students and teachers of The American International School of Budapest were with me.
Zsolt's wish was a netbook, and his wish was one of the 9 chosen by the student participants of the 6th Walk-the-Wish. The "Walk-the-Wish" is a sponsored walk, organised by the AISB in order to sponsor some "Csodalámpa" wishes.

Zsolt was operated only two days before our arriving. The next day we have asked his mum, wether we could come so near to the operation, but she said yes. Then we gave her a very difficult task: she should keep our coming secret...

Zsolt, knowing nothing, watched TV when Csilla entered his ward with the netbook. We told him who we were, why did we come, and that to grant his wish, 800 student and teacher has joined forces...

Thanks to his mum we could surprise him. After some happy chatting Csilla helped him with the unpacking and the first steps of the setup, as Zsolt could only use one hand, the other being bandaged. He seemingly could manage quite well with the new computer and even the many setup questions of the first startup wasn't a problem for him.

Ben has brought a sweatshirt of the AISB as an extra present and we were lucky, as the size passed exactly.

Even the nurse on duty turned up, and seeing Zsolt and the netbook, joined to our happiness.

Some more chatting, photos, then we said our goodbyes to Zsolt and his mother, wishing him a fast recovery.

We would like to thank in the name of Zsolt the students and professors of American International School of Budapest for this wonderful present.
