Dr. Dian is here at Open Windows for yet another week of treating children at our learning center.
Among his young patients are a girl and a boy with a rare disease. For these afflicted children, parts of their body have turned black; in addition, the liver swells with fat, whereas the rest of the body is only bones. For this disease there is no cure.
The boy with this disease is not going to school because the other children make fun of him. Children can be very cruel when they see someone different.
Thanks to Dr. Dian, children are at least getting a diagnosis of their diseases. Others are being treated and cured. This medical attention makes their educational prospects brighter.
Open Windows welcomes volunteers. If you know someone who is looking to make a difference, please contact Teresa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
