DCI to the Rescue!

mahibul1On October 11, 2008, Mahibul Akhon, brother of Sun Child Saiful Akohn, was playing with some other boys. They started to push a van nearby and suddenly it rolled backward onto Mahibul’s left foot. He lost consciousness. He was brought to the health complex 12 km away, where the local doctor determined that his leg was broken, gave him some medicine and asked for him to be taken to the city hospital. But Mahibul’s family is too poor to afford the trip, let alone pay for the treatment. His parents came to DCI’s project area office for help and DCI took immediate action. Mahibul and his family were brought to Dhaka Medical College Hospital, where he underwent full treatment and recovered.
