A woman who lost a leg in a recent earthquake in Chile has received a surprise gift in the mail.
Ms Miho Kawamura says she received a note from the Chile Earthquake Authority on Monday, saying it was for her.
“I’ve been waiting for this message for a long time,” Ms Kawamura told 7.30.
She’s hoping it will mean the world to her.
She lost her left leg in the quake in Chile last year, and has since been undergoing rehabilitation at the National Institute of Medical Sciences (INMS).
“I don’t think I’ll be able to move again, but I can get up and walk,” she said.
“So, it’s a good thing.”
And also the message is nice.
“The message from Chile’s Earthquake Authority says it will send a special card for Ms Kawamase in her birthday celebration on Wednesday.”
This card has special meaning for you,” the note reads.”
It’s a symbol of strength and hope, and it is from the Chilean Government.
“In the event you’re celebrating your birthday today, please don’t miss this card.”
Ms Kawamura, who is also a writer, has been able to use her new leg.
“The card is so big that I can’t even put it on my phone,” she explained.
“But I’ve got a big heart and I know that it’s for me.”
