Fish Farming Rescues Boy from Disease Complications
By Sarah Ooko, Senior Communications & Media Officer for World Vision in Kenya Tobias was born with Sickle Cell disease, a condition that, for a long time, made him sick and weak. The effects of this disease often forced the 10-year-old to miss school. His father, James, who was, at the time, a capture fisherman was not making enough money. With his meager income, he was unable to afford the medical care recommended for the effective management of Tobias's disease.
