“Rose is my wonderful girl who likes smiling. She is indeed a rose to me. My beautiful girl met her fate when the wrapper she was wearing caught fire as she was cooking sweet potatoes with her friend. This caused a burn on her right elbow. I wasn’t around when the incident occurred, but I heard from my friend that Rose had been taken to the hospital. It was very painful for me since I left her well. However, I accepted what happened. I stayed in the hospital with my daughter for some time, and then we were discharged. The wound is completely healed now, but she has a contracture. When I went back to the hospital, they referred me to CURE. I am very glad to be here at CURE, and I am so excited that my daughter is going to theatre. From what the doctors have told me, I believe my daughter’s operation will be successful. May God guide the doctors during the operation in Jesus name.”
Mary, Rose’s mother
