Vianise knew something was very wrong with her 5-year-old son, Diverge. He had not eaten in three days and his fever wouldn’t break. No matter how hard she tried to console him, she couldn’t stop her little boy from crying.
Vianise took Diverge to the nearest doctor in Petit Rivière, where she learned that her son’s condition was very serious and contagious. He had diphtheria. He was immediately referred to HAS for treatment, where he would need to stay in quarantine until he got better.
Finding comfort in care.
In the hospital, Diverge began to feel better and was able to eat and sleep again.
“I feel so much better because now Diverge is feeling better and he seems like himself again,” says Vianise. “He is laughing, smiling and playing with me. He is going to be okay.”
To all of those who support the hospital, Vianise says, “Thank you. Thank you. This [medical care] is what saved my son’s life. Please do not stop!”
