Burn-contractures Released

Mani, a 13 yr old boy, has a tragic story. His mother committed suicide by burning herself in a fire, dragging Mani into the flames following a quarrel with her husband. Luckily a neighbour heard the commotion but sadly could only save the badly-burned Mani. His father re-married and had further children, discarding Mani to the House of Peace. Mani had contractures in his arms and finger. We took him to a plastic surgeon who released the contractures. Now Mani can stretch and use his hands like any other child. Mani loves the House of Peace orphanage and enjoys staying there.
