Christmas 2015 was approaching. 4 year old Olamide and his brother were on vacation and were playing. While playing, Olamide’s brother accidentally pushed him and he fell on his left hand. It seemed like a minor injury. But time proved it was not. A week later when his father had to take me to the hospital, it was too late to save the hand. Olamide’s hand had to be amputated a few days before Christmas. It has been a traumatic experience not only for Olamide who does not understand why he no longer can hold things, but also for his brother and parents.
Olamide has now been fitted with a functional arm. It was a joy to see him smiling again.
