I was sad that I couldn’t go to school
I felt sad and worried because I was not able to play with my friends and I saw my parents trying so hard to find a medicine that would cure me.
I know my mum was very worried. She was very upset when she saw that I was not getting better. She did so much to try to find someone who could cure me.
Then my parents met Heather from ChildFund PNG and she told us what to do.
How Heather and ChildFund helped me get back to school
She told my mother where to go and which scans to get. The doctor told me I had tuberculosis and gave me some medicine to cure it.
After I saw the doctor, Heather made sure I knew what to do to stay healthy so I could stay in school.
She checked me regularly and made sure I was getting better. Now, I am feeling very strong and healthy. I fear, if we did not meet Heather, I would still be sick and I would not be able to go to school.
Now, I’m back in school and playing with my friends.
