Mr. Cool & Friends
November 10, 2016

Hello again Mr. Cool supporters, hope it is a great start to November for y’all. For anyone who missed the June update on Mr. Cool’s progress See More

EVENT DATE May 29, 2015

THE STORY:

I first met Mr. Cool after one of his many hospital visits. His smile instantly captivated me and upon learning his story I knew I was here to help him.

About three years ago, Mr. Cool was trafficked to a fisherman and his wife, to work on Lake Volta. Daily labor became his life, including: fishing, bailing water from boats or canoes, and diving into the water to disentangle nets. One day, Mr. Cool slipped on the canoe and fell, hitting his chest against one of the seats, fracturing bones in his chest and back. He was not taken to a hospital and the extent of his accident was unknown. The severe injury caused his inability to walk as well as the development of an engorgement on his back. Eventually, he was taken to see an herbalist for treatment where his master abandoned him with this stranger. Here Mr. Cool was traumatized as he was starved and forced to crawl to the herbalist’s farm to sweep the large compound, despite his crippling injury.

Fortunately, the intervention of Eric Peasah (Director, Right To Be Free) and the Department of Social Welfare, saved him from an uncertain fate. After a court order and intervention from the police, Mr. Cool was saved and placed in the care of a children's home.

Over three weeks time I've worked with Mr. Cool daily. We stumble to the washroom together every morning. We work basic writing skills and play memorization games. He is very intelligent and serves as my translator when speaking with the other children. The most promising and admiral characteristic about Mr. Cool is his pursuit for justice. He wants to become a police officer so he can arrest his former master and others that traffic children. He has an eagerness for attending school and church service, both of which are not currently available due to his injuries.

With the spinal surgery, Mr. Cool will have the ability to sit straight, allowing for a wheelchair to provide mobility. Through rehabilitation and aftercare, there is hope he can have control of his legs and walk one day, assisted only by personalized crutches.

In less than a month Mr. Cool has done more to affect me than I'll ever be able to do for him. He has the ability to change the world around him for the better. With our help in financing this surgery and aftercare, that dream can become a reality.
