Yankho is a 4-year-old boy who had ear infections in both ears essentially his whole life but has never received treatment. He was seen on a HARK outreach in Blantyre, as his mother heard about our outreach from his school at Andiseni Primary.
He was very scared and didn’t want anyone to look in his ears. Kent (ENT/Audiology Officer) gave him the otoscope to hold, and demonstrated how it works. Kent has managed to mop the infection from both ears, and prescribed him with antibiotics and pain reducers.
Our HARK team will be returning for another outreach to check on his infection and test his hearing to determine the best way to move forward.
