Surgeons give Afghan girl reuse of hand

 

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionBastogneNangarhar Province, Afghanistan – Nazawaly wants to be a doctor. But with her right hand wrapped in gauze, it’s hard for the 8-year-old Afghan girl to even write her homework. She winces when she tries to use it, so she writes her lessons with her left hand. Even though it’s a weekday, she’s not in school.

“She’s super tough; a tough little girl,” said U.S. Army Capt. Adam W. Racusin, an orthopedic surgeon. “It’s all right, sweetie.”

Nazawaly tried not to pull her hand away from the doctor as she whimpered in pain.

Nazawaly's hand was badly burned by boiling water rendering her hand useless before the surgery. (Photo by U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Mark Burrell, Task Force Bastogne Public Affairs)
