Meet DonaldsonšŸ˜€

07 Aug

Donaldson is a little 6-year-old boy who is very poor and neglected. He likes coming to our home everyday. He was always dirty and wore the same clothes everyday. We gave him some new shirts, shorts (thanks to your genrosity), and new underwear.

 One day we noticed that Donaldson had a terrible skin rash with opened sores on his arms, legs, torso, head and ears. It was like infected pimples.  We asked our Dr. Wanitha to see him. Donaldson has Scabies. Scabies is most common among people who live in overcrowded conditions, and whose ability to practice good hygiene is limited. Scabies can be passed between people by close skin contact. Although the mites can only live away from human skin for about three days, sharing clothing or bedclothes can pass scabies among family members or close contacts. 

It has been over two weeks since Donaldson saw our clinic doctor. He is getting better slowly but surely. Thank you for all your support to help care for these kids. Look at Donaldson with his new clean shorts and t-shirt.

  
Here is Donaldson’s legs when we first saw them, this rash was all over his little body.
