Pamela

This is Pamela, he has been living at Mahanaim home for disabled children since March. He has never been able to walk so when he was younger his parents took him to a country doctor where he was treated by fire - he now has scars from the burns going from his bottom all the way down to the backs of his knees. The fire treatment didn't work.

His chest and back are deformed, but we don't know if he was born that way or if it's a result of bad treatment he had received due to his disabilities. He had a lot of pain in his chest and regularly struggles to breathe.

Today I took him to the satelite hospital in Rokupa where he was referred to see a pediatrician at the PCMH hospital in Fourah Bay Road. I'm waiting to see if there's anything that can be done to make him more comfortable.
