Progress, progress!!

12th November:

Many thanks to our kind supporters who responded 
so quickly to our appeal and have pledged money
for Fatima's treatment. Dinah is now en route to Bhola
and we look forward to hearing her news of life
at Bhola Garden. Yesterday, Ali sent us this update:

"Dear all
Fatima is admitted in the Hospital and has
start to get the proper medicine. We are
paying food, Medicine, every thing.

Lots of love from your children." (Ali)

Monday 10th November: We received this sad news from Ali:

"An Orphan girl, Fatima Begom, 17 years old, 
(don¹t have father, mother and other relatives) has
been burned by fire, and admitted in the government
Hospital in Bhola but she couldn¹t buy the medicine,
then she was discharge from hospital. Now her burn
place is dangerous, she may not be live any more if
she will not get proper treatment. If any one can help
her, she my saved. If any one can help her then I can
go for the treatment, she or he can send the money after.

Very simple away she burnt, after evening she was
giving the light with Kerosene lamp oil
In the lamp it wasn¹t any kerosene so she opens
the mouth of the lamp for to put in the kerosene,
at that time the burning part of the lamp with
kerosene fall down on her body, the cloth was on her
body was silk cloth so its burn and melted on her Skeins.

Send the prayer to the others friend if needed.

Lots of love from your children." (Ali)

We sparing you the photograph, but can assure
you the poor girl¹s burns are horrendous.
Although not strictly within Bhola¹s Children¹s remit,
we have told Ali to proceed immediately with the treatment:

"Thank you so much for quick answer, tomorrow morning I will go to
hospital with her.
God bless you. Make a special pray for the girl". (Ali)

If you would you like to contribute to Fatima¹s treatment
and skin grafts, please write Ĺ’Fatima¹ on the back
of your cheque and we will make sure she is told
who has helped her. Thankyou.
