Jeremias, 9 years old, comes from Angola.

He was referred to us via the Peace Village. After being burned as a result of armed conflict, he had severe scars on his left arm and left hand. As a result, his left upper extremity was unusable.

We treated him between January and April 2015 at the Emil von Behring Clinic and operated on him three times.

At the end of March, he found himself in a state of mental emergency characterized by auto aggression, xenophobia and a post-traumatic psycho syndrome. We therefore took him to the Bethanien hospital in Moers, near the Peace Village, where he could be visited by his friends.

This improved his psychological situation. The plastic surgeons continue the treatment and help him further.
