Bernard underwent orthopedic surgery.

Bernard was admitted on Sunday 4th Nov 2018, he went to the theatre on Monday 5th. The surgery was successful. At the ward, Bernard was taken care of by the nurses and physiotherapist. This surgery will be of great importance to him as he will be able to help her mother in doing various tasks at home. The surgery will also help me walk well, previously, he was having difficulty to walk to school and other places but once he heals, he will have no difficulty in walking.

“I am hoping that I will heal soon, walk like I used to walk without any hardship, continue with my studies and help my mother at home,” Bernard told us.
