8-month-old Ayona was rushed to Red Cross Children’s Hospital after being burnt on his face, chest and arms, by hot water in a kettle. Nearly 70% of all burns admissions to the Hospital are caused by kettles. The Burns Unit at Red Cross Children’s Hospital is the only specialised paediatric Burns Unit within a dedicated children’s hospital in Africa.

Joanne’s world came to an abrupt halt when she heard her little one-year-old boy, Luke, cry out in pain. He tipped over a cup of very hot tea resulting in burn wounds on his chin, chest and right arm. He was immediately rushed to Red Cross Children’s Hospital. After receiving the best treatment, he is now able to go home and fully recover. Let’s send Luke our best wishes.
