Wickliff received treatment for his pneumonia.

“Wickliff will no longer be plagued by this respiratory infection and will not suffer from respiratory failure, sepsis, or possible death,” his doctor at our Ugandan partner, The Kellermann Foundation, writes. “He is a brave little boy and with the treatment that is being provided he will be able to win the battle. He can go back to being the friendly, affectionate boy that he was before and further his knowledge in school next year. Also, he can go back to digging holes in the yard and being a protective big brother to his sister.”

Wickliff’s family says, “Thank you for giving our son a chance at life and may you be blessed.”

Meet Wickliff, a five-year-old little boy from Uganda. Watsi’s medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, tells us, “Wickliff is usually a very friendly, affectionate boy who loves to smile. He also loves to play and watch out for his younger sister and helps her dig holes in the yard. He will start school next year and his parents, who are both farmers, are very excited and hope he will do great things with his education.”

Wickliff currently has pneumonia which is causing him to have a difficult time breathing and he isn’t acting like his normal, friendly self. Wickliff has been strong through this ordeal, but he needs medical intervention in order to survive.

Wickliff’s family is working hard to chip in for the co-pay of $14 for the treatment that their little boy needs right now. $90 will cover the rest of the expense of Wickliff’s pneumonia treatment. The medical partner tells us that after treatment, “Wickliff will no longer be brought down by pneumonia and will return to good spirits…His parents are looking forward to welcome back his friendly smiles and affectionate behavior.”
