Oswald is just 5 years old but already leprosy threatens his future.
Oswald already had patches on his body and face, thickened earlobes and an ulcer on his right foot.
To be showing symptoms of leprosy so young is a very bad sign. it is only a matter of time before more ulcers threaten his mobility, and the opportunity to start school, which he is very much looking forward to.
