Santigi Sesay, 7, lives in a small village in Sierra Leone. He has been suffering from an infection of his left jaw, resulting from a decayed tooth. He stayed with relatives in Freetown, the capital city, for almost two months to undergo oral surgery. The decayed bone was removed and the infection was brought under control.
We hope that in a few months he will be fully recovered and able to eat solid foods again. When he and his Mom stopped by to greet me after his the procedure, he was unable to enjoy his beloved hard candy. He was sad! Hopefully that will change soon!
