I learned how to treat burns. The first time I time I had to treat someone was my nephew, one day he came and my mother wasn’t home. I had to step up and treat him even though the wounds were pretty bad. I have tried to teach my surroundings what I know, but it takes a lot of courage and not everyone can do it. A lot of the times I take off the burned skin, which hurts the person a lot so it’s not very easy. My husband can do it as well, but he can’t take much it’s difficult for him. I don’t charge for any of the work I do, I sometimes even give my patients medicine for free. The best feeling is when a former patient is fully recovered and comes back to visit you
