In Dire Straights

 

 

6 months ago Abdul Karin aged 5 sustained 3rd degree petrol fire burns to 25% of his body covering his back and legs. For the first time he is being diagnosed by a dermatologist, being treated every 2 days and is finally taking pain meds. Due to donations from Stephanie’s Channeling for Charity we had the cash to take him directly to a private clinic and pay upfront for one month of specialist medical care, medication and medical supplies. 

Plus, 2 more children are currently being treated for burns.

 Children in Senegal are being intentionally burned within the human trafficking rings that plague the country. The local medical center charges £5 for a visit PLUS the cost of all medical supplies used. 

There is a government clinic a taxi ride away that only charges £1 PLUS the cost of all medical supplies used. 

BUT their knowledge is limited and with taxes it ends up being the same price. 

Hotels, restaurants, shops & tourist homes all closed.

Example: 

1 Day’s wages for hard labour on a building site £4

Bandage Roll £1.50

Antibiotic cream £6

Antiseptic £4

Pain killers x 10 £3

Fatou is 2 years old and has a 2nd degree burn on her arm. She is one of our children who comes for breakfast. She arrived with a dirty rag on the wound and is now being treated daily until it heals.

As part of my project I am teaching locals how to treat & dress wounds. In this picture Mame Cheikh, a shop owner in the market square is tending to Fatou.
