I wouldn’t say it’s very common anywhere, to hear stories about people being burned by battery acid, but of course anything is possible, especially in Africa. One-year-old Tamandani Phiri is one of the few who can say he was burned in exactly that way. A cell phone battery was on its charger when it exploded, exposing the acid. Tamandani went exploring and found the acid, and like little kids do, he put his left and in it. Now his hand is unusable, as his pointer and middle finger are fused to his palm. Thank goodness he came to CURE because we know just how to handle that!
Tamandani's case is complete - Tamandani had his cast taken off last month and he has exhibited a major change in what his situation was previously. He has a much greater range of motion than he did before, and he can use his fingers to hold things now, which he couldn't do previously. His parents and his community are very grateful for all CURE had done, and we are grateful to you for being a part of it!
Tamandani is scheduled for followup at CURE Malawi
Tamandani's treatment date has been changed to 07/02/2012 - We were hoping to see Tamandani at the Lilongwe clinic to get after surgery pictures, but he never showed up and we couldn't get ahold of him. We'll try again for July's clinic.
Tamandani is coming back from Feed the Children today so we'll be able to get after pictures for you!
Tamandani is still running around the ward. He went in for a dressing change yesterday and all is good!
Tamandani is receiving treatment at CURE Malawi
Tamandani is in recovery at CURE Malawi - Tamandani's surgery is all over and he's resting and recovering now.
Tamandani's treatment date has been changed to 03/22/2012 - Tamandani is ready for surgery!
Congratulations! Tamandani's funding goal is met!
