Sometimes you have to gather thousands of people just to meet one special person

As I posted last time a story about how the grace of God changed my life and inspired me to be a blessing to others, and as our foundation (buene hope foundation) were planning to go visit vulnerable people, so that day came and we went to the refugee camp to see them and everything went well and we found plenty people there, we help them with little things we had, while I was there I had a strange feeling that there was something that wasn't right like when you are doing something and you feel that there's something that missing but by seeing how people suffered out there, it makes us appreciate everything we have and being grateful. So I was really happy as we did something for them.

Again still felt that wasn't accomplish that day mission at 100%

Then at the end of the function, a woman came with her baby, the baby name is Pascal, now I call him John Pascal.

This is his story :the complications started at the time of birth, it was difficult to the mother to deliver the baby due to the position of baby in the womb, he was sitting, at that time, if the could've continue the process the baby could've died so the doctor went straight to the operation way,  the surgery succeeded the baby was born with water, so the injected a sting to remove the water, according to the mother he did one month in the respirator machine, it tooks the mother one month and a half so that she actually hold her baby, after four months, she discovered that her son couldn't sit, or act as a normal baby. The mother gave birth in Rutshuru a small village in Goma D.R.Congo,and after realising that problem, she didn't have money to take the baby to the hospital for treatment, so she decided to come to Kampala where her husband was (he's land keeper) and see how they can treated the baby, as the father didn't have money and he has 8 kid, they could to anything for the baby.

So now the baby has two and a half years old but he still can't walk, can't sit, can't eat he can take only porridge, as women and to see how that mother is suffering I couldn't help myself, it was so painful, according to the doctor from here he told us the baby has a cerebral palsy.

After hearing  John Pascal story, my heart was touched and I knew we came that day so that we can meet this special baby, and as things happen for no reason that why I promise to myself that I will do everything I can to help this baby (John Pascal).

Now we are looking for way they can get their passport and take them to India or somewhere else for more medical treatment.

We can afford for them the tickets to go but not for the treatment that why we really need your support, please let make a difference in this special kid life

Ooh poor Pascal boy. So what did the doctors diagnose about his health? Is it something that cannot be treated or attended to in his own country?

Dear Tino,

You did well by following your spirit's leading. So much hardship and sufferings in our world you sometimes feel so overwhelmed. Have also thought of doing a crowd fund raising using one of these platforms like GoFundMe?

Dear Tino,
Thanks for your kind heart and initiative to help John Pascal. How is he fairing and how are his parents?
You may try CURE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL in Mbale District, they do surgery children with celebral palsy.

Also CORSU HOSPITAL in Kisubi - Entebbe.
Both hospitals have flexible rates and host international reknown medical personnel throughout the year.

I pray my feedback is not so late - all the best
