Boy violently abused in need of urgent medical care


A nine-year-old boy, who has only been identified as Neil, is in need of urgent medical care for third-degree burns and other injuries about his body.

The boy sustained his injuries in an alleged case of severe child abuse.

The Saving hand Emergency Aid (SHEA) publicly funded charity is raising funds for the boy, who is currently receiving care at the Georgetown Public Hospital.

“Due to the severity of his injuries, he must be medically transported to the United States for emergency treatment by air ambulance. Fortunately, we have secured treatment for him, but we need your help to get him to the United States,” SHEA wrote in a Facebook post.

    Oh! How sad for the little one. it is beyond my thinking how someone could be so cruel to a minor at that. I do hope that all is medically done for him so that he could get well again. I also hope that the necessary justice would be served.
