Francis gets the all clear

It with great joy that we can report that Francis has made a full recovery from osteomyelitis.
After almost five months of treatment the orthopaedic consultant at Tawfiq private hospital in Malindi has given him a clean bill of health.
Back in January that Mama took Francis,13, to the hospital because je was walking badly and very tired all the time.
Tests and scans revealed that he had the bone infection osteomyelitis in the hip joint requiring surgery to remove the dead bone. A leg bace, to support the infected limb, was made for him and he has been taking high doses of antibiotics to clear the infection.
Mama Sue desperately worried about her boy - he first came to our family as a very small child - had the added worry over money as there is in no national health system in Kenya.
As always, you rallied to help donating £4400. after paying costs of his care the remainder is being kept in a fund for medical and dental treatment.
We know you will be delighted  with the news of Francis recovery and we would like to thank each and every one of you who made this possible. Thank you.
