Rosa Saffa and Emmanuel Lamin, both counselors for the children in the CRC program, have begun counseling sessions twice a week to Abu Bakarr Kanu, pediatric burn patient at Mercy Hospital. These sessions are critical in order to keep his spirits up and address any emotional or psychological trauma he may be suffering, while the Mercy staff works to build his strength to prepare him for surgery later this year.
In these initial sessions, Rosa and Emmanuel meet with Abu together to help him to become familiar with them both. As time goes on, they will rotate their time with Abu to allow for one-on-one sessions twice a week for as long as Abu remains at Mercy.
