Children under 6 years old are the most affected

Taking measurements to a patient
Taking measurements to a patient

We sincerely hope that you are feeling very well this days!

Did you know that 60% of children who burn are under 6 years old ?, and it is unfortunate that due to the pandemic, burn accidents have increased by 30% in Peru. Angelito is one of our patients, who was burned with direct fire while helping his work´s father, he burned 37% of his body and unfortunately many children burn daily.

For his recovery he needs to wear compression garments for at least 3 years. The compression garments are made to measure, that is, they are made individually, where the therapist must take the measurements, test, sew, fail and deliver.

This project will cover 4 sets of elastic garments for 150 burned children from the districts of San Juan de Lurigancho, Villa El Salvador, San Martin de Porres, Ate, Villa Maria del Triunfo, and Comas, which are the areas with the highest incidence, making a total of 1200 sets of garments for the first year of treatment.

At ANIQUEM we have been making compression garments with great affection for more than 20 years and we are very happy with the results throughout this time.

That is why we say thank you very much for your important support!

Please take care and all the best.

With gratitude,

The whole Team ANIQUEM

Little Sebastian, a strong burn survivor!

His favorte, the little cars
His favorte, the little cars

Sebastián is one of the survivors of the tragedy of Villa El Salvador in Lima, he is a 3-year-old boy, who loves “tallarines verdes” and the typical Peruvian food called "ceviche", he is also passionate about playing with his carts. He currently lives with his father and aunt, the little one still does not remember that he lost his mother and older sister in this terrible accident.

This child has severe second and third degree burns equivalent to 65% of his body, at the beginning it was difficult for him to get used to his compression garments, however now he plays and runs as before, and another good news is that the itching of his little body has dropped by 70%. However, the use of the silicone thermoplastic mask, if it bothers him a little, but the father does not stop monitoring its use, and another problem, presented by Sebastián, is that the thumb of his right hand tends to pull back because of the graft he has, so that through play the father manages to move his finger, you can see the short video about it.

ANIQUEM is very happy with the results and with the family's commitment, although Sebastian has a long way to go, he is not alone, he has the support of many people with great hearts who want to see a smile again in this little one.

That is why we say thank you very much!

Please take care and all the best.

With gratitude,

The whole Team ANIQUEM
