Nyadal Guan, mother speaking to Dr. Renske Dikkers about her baby Kuan after a successful surgery to close a dangerous erruption on the skin of the lower back. The baby was born with spina bifida.  ?I came yesterday in the hospital and I was checked with my child by a doctor. The doctor explained that there was a problem at the back of my child that needed to be checked by surgery. I think it is really good care. I was referred and they took me in immediately, put me a bed, put a canular on my baby and acted straight away. This is my first time coming to this hospital, I normally deliver at home with a traditional birth attendant.?..Kuan had a very successful operation and is getting stronger by the day. Had he not been operated on, the lump on his back would have burst and likely gotten infected. Nasir, South Sudan
