About Saul: Six year old Saul was referred to us by Hospital Tiquisate. He has a twin sister who is relatively healthy, but Saul suffered a worse case of malnutrition. He has always suffered from stomach problems and recently had a severe skin reaction to medication while in the hospital. He was with us for a few days and then sent back to the hospital. We hope to have him back with us soon and on his way to recovery, though it will be a long road for him.
