Upon arrival to our centre, his mother explained to us that her son has given up on living, that he is refusing to eat and that he wanted to die.

Within the first weeks at the centre we did find Sakda resistant to nourishment and that he was indeed very depressed, having to resort to force feeding him using a medical syringe to rehydrate his system. We made it very clear to him that dying was not his choice to make, and that God has a plan for him, He just needed to get eating ….

Little by little Sakda has improved, gaining weight ever so slowly.  Now, Sakda is a happy boy.  We have found him to have a very bright mind, and is interested and enthusiastic to learn. He still has a long way to go in his delayed development but we are confident that we are giving him the best that we have to offer.
