Kameron is one of the peer volunteers at the clinic and he was rushed into the clinic after 2 days not being able to talk. He was brought into us in a confused mental state, in and out of consciousness. Caretakers reported that he had received treatment from a nearby clinic, but could not provide any documentation. Emergency care was given and an ambulance was called to transport him to the hospital and he was admitted.
He was diagnosed with meningitis. Two days later, he developed a blood clot and the hospital had run out of lifesaving drugs. The medicines to manage these conditions are very expensive, and Kameron being a clinic volunteer, could not afford this treatment.
Thanks to the AFCA funds, we were able to procure medicines for his treatment throughout the two weeks period he was admitted. He has now recovered from both the meningitis and the blood clot is gone as well. Kameron has been discharged from the hospital and is regaining his energy and getting ready to come back to the clinic to serve his fellow patients.
