When he came to us, was severely malnourished and had fluid collections around his lungs and heart. He could barely eat because of the swelling. At the age of 5 he had the weight of a 2year old. He under went surgery. Luckily the swelling turned out to be tuberculosis and not cancer. He'd probably been sick with childhood TB around the time his parents abandoned him. Having suffered neglect, the disease would probably have spread all over his body causing all his symptoms and almost ended up killing him. We treated him till he was well enough to return to the orphanage. The orphanage has also been very sincere with his medications. But if he is to survive, he needs good nutrition for a year. This boy has suffered great neglect at the hands of his parents, survived a lifethreatening infection but never once cried despite the injections and the surgery. He still smiles when he meets us at his health follow up. Please come forward to reinstate his faith in humanity. Give him a second chance at life!
