His family is poor. This boy,has had fallen on  a stone and been injured on his right arm,the condition that make him to be treated at home (locally),where the wound became infected and took a very long time,this boy is living with his Grandfather.Then the grandfather decided to take him to hospital,the doctors decided to do amputation but the grandfather refused and took the patient back home and local treatment continued,the grandfather explained that he didnt take the boy to hospital soon due to poor economic status.Then,the boy got healed with short limb with contracture of the limb and fingers as you see.
