Jack was found at the front gate to someone’s house as they returned in the evening. He was about 14m old but could not yet walk. He was malnourished and very sick with pneumonia. We treated his pneumonia but he keep getting it again. We took him to a third hospital where they really investigated for two weeks while placing him on an intensive feeding program with special substituted. He was tested for TB and cycle cell anemia amongst other things. In the end they decided that the recurrent pneumonia was due to underdeveloped lungs due to chronic malnutrition.
He has been very healthy ever since.
He is a very happy boy with a huge smile and big hugs for all his friends.
