Tom was born a normal child in a small village of Nanzungi in Kyerima parish kitimbwa sub county. At age 3months he had severe malaria and was admitted in the hospital for 2months. After the treatment the mother realised that the child had become weak and had poor neck control. They have visited several hospitals and have been told on several occasions that Tom's brain had been damaged by the malaria he got at three months. Soh started working with Tom on the 29-jan- 2009. Currently we have been able to get Tom to walk with support of a walker and also being able to control the seizures he has been having for the last 3years.
Our current focus is on getting Tom be able to walk and develop Functional skills to be as independent as we had make him to become.
