Honufa Begum, a young girl living in DCI’s Sun Child Sponsorship project area in Potuakhali, was suffering from osteomyelitis. A local caretaker recommended that her leg be amputated. But since DCI’s commitment is to provide healthcare for all children within its sponsorship area, we brought Hanufa to a children’s hospital in Dhaka and paid for all of her costs, including treatment, hospital stay, and transportation. In addition, DCI provided accommodation and food for her family during the period of her treatment. Now Honufa’s leg is healed, she is no longer in pain, and she is able to walk again.
