Afia and Thomas
Afia,her husband and their two children live in a rural area of Ghana about three hours drive from the capital. At the moment she isn't able to live with her family because she is staying at the hospital with her 11 year old son Thomas, who has leukaemia.
It's been a long journey for Thomas, who has received almost two years of intensive treatment. His mum has seen a real improvement in his condition and is relieved that he now attends clinic only once a month. This gives her hope that he will recover and that life can return to normal for her and the rest of the family.
