You have no idea how persistent Gosia Tomaszewska had to be to find a place at the rehabilitation centre in the capital of Burkina Faso for Hyacinthe. On the 21st of January, we arranged a medical consultation, and already at 7 a.m. this morning we were back in the therapy room with him!
The boy suffered cerebral malaria in early childhood, the effects of which he still experiences today. When we first met him, he was not moving at all. He was facing the prospect of spending the rest of his life in a wheelchair.
I dream of my son walking again. When Hyacinthe fell ill, those were nightmarish days. I don’t wish anyone, like me, to be stuck in complete helplessness and watch the disease take away their child. I howled in despair.” – said Alimata, the boy’s mother.
We could not accept this. Together with your help, we financed the tests that qualified the boy for the first round of rehabilitation.
Today, he lifts his right arm high up without any problem, he also lifts his legs! We know that this is not the time to rest on our laurels, and Hyacinthe still has a long way to go under the care of rehabilitation specialists. It’s three meetings a week, during which, step by step, we restore the boy’s dexterity and hope for full independence when he grows up.
One session with a physiotherapist costs around PLN 25, the equivalent of a Bouquet of Good, which you can get at GoodWorks 24/7. If you would like to take the next steps towards independence together with Hyacinthe, please give him and his mother one such bouquet.
