Several months ago, Mercy Hospital successfully treated a small boy who had suffered second degree burns on his hands. The mother could not afford to pay for the child's treatment, but Mercy treats all patients regardless of their ability to pay. His mother returned to the hospital to show her appreciation to Mercy staff for the care they provided to her little boy, who has healed well from his injuries.
Burn injuries are among the most devastating and traumatic injuries, and are a major contributor to child mortality in sub-Saharan Africa, according to the World Health Organization.
