Jelson was 9 years old, when he came to visit us for the first time from Angola, referred to us via the peace village.

He suffered burns all over his body, the consequences of which were most severe on the left hand. So, on 12.6.2019 he received a micro vascular ALT flap on the back of his left hand which improved the hand function significantly.

Jelson was treated for the first time within the framework of a new cooperation at the Alfried Krupp Hospital in Essen, which we were really excited about!!!!

Private lecturer Dr. Daniel Tillkorn initiated this, took care of everything and operated on little Jelson with great support from Associate Professor. Dr. Jörg Hauser.

Many Thanks!
