Tom's reflections - Part #2
One of the boys I met on my first visit to Waterloo is named Alhassan, age 13 (street name: “Father Joe”). He had injured his foot a few weeks earlier and it was plain to see that he was in big trouble if he did not get medical attention soon. Infection was spreading, constant fever, pain up his leg as far as his groin and he was past the point of being able to walk without help.
