Panganani is a 13 year old boy who was admitted to Nkhoma Hospital in early 2014 with a snake bite on the leg, which was quite severe. Fortunately for Panganani, the hospital had some anti-venom, but he still required an operation (fasciotomy of the leg) to prevent the need to amputate the limb. However, the bill was large, totaling Mk 86,670 (about £135) of which Panganani’s family could only find Mk 25,500, leaving a balance of Mk 51,170 (about £80). Positive Steps was able to pay for the remainder of this care that prevented an amputation! After 47 days hospitalisation, Panganani (pictured here) was able to walk out (on both legs!) thanks to donations to Positive Steps.
