Little Charmer is one of six children, with the oldest being 10 years old and the youngest seven months. Mom was in the kitchen boiling water for the baby’s bottles and saw the kids playing outside. She poured the hot water into a bowl and added the bottles for sterilising. She turned her back for a second and as she turned around she saw our charmer reaching up for the bowl and boiling water poured over him.
One can just imagine the trauma and screams that ensued. He was then rushed to the nearest hospital and then referred to us as the burn service for the region. Accidents like this happen all over South Africa every day, and luckily for our little charmer, most of his wounds will heal well. He is also surrounded by a loving parent and is receiving lots of love and care from the caregivers.
