Fabrice, age 5 seen here as he attends an Ears, Nose and Throat appointment accompanied by A Partnership in Caring volunteer Maria van Vonderen.
There was a German ENT group who assessed him today. They will continue to follow him. APICS has supported Fabrice since 2016.
Over the past year there have been improvements, FABRICE now attends school each day ( mornings) then individual teaching each afternoon. He is more social and engaging, he has made physical gains but remains far behind in weight gain. We hope his paediatric appointment next week can provide more insight into his challenges. He lives with his mother and 2 brothers. His mother is very poor, she works in the fields with her youngest son on her back.
