Shaffik’s Story

 

Shaffik is 16 years old.  

He had bone infection and ulcers in the soles of his feet which could not heal due to Amnotic band syndrome (a condition which constricts the limbs causing decreased blood supply). 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He consulted so many health centers for help, but none could help him. 

 

He could no longer attend school due the complications and pain he had. 

 

By the time he got to CoRSU, amputation was the only option that could help Shaffik. Amputation was done on both limbs and later artificial legs were provided. 

 

Shaffik is now back to school, he is not complaining anymore and grateful to CoRSU for giving him hope.
