Collings Mazizi

Collings-Mazizi-(3)Collings Mazizi is 6 years old. He had suffered severe burns on his legs as a result of falling into a ditch where there were hot remains of a fire.  His feet were so badly burned that he had to have a through ankle amputation on one side and a partial foot amputation on the other.  These are his first prosthetic legs.  He is just starting to practise using them as the skin is still very sensitive to pressure and he cannot tolerate wearing them for more than a short period.  We hope that he will build up a tolerance, be admitted to school and go on to lead a normal life instead of being left on the scrap heap because he couldn’t walk.
