When a man in India lost his life to a ventilator, a young nurse from a private hospital in the Hatoa region decided to do something about it.
“My sonido was really important for me to be able to help others.
So, I thought, let’s take care of him.
That’s what I did,” said the nurse.
“As soon as he became conscious, he was taken to the hospital.
We were able to bring him to the bed, so he could be placed in the bed.”
The boy had developed severe breathing problems and he was on a ventilated bed.
But as he was in a bad condition, the nurse decided to help him breathe again.
“I told the nurse, ‘We have to make sonido.
If you don’t make sonio, you’ll lose this sonido’,” she said.
The nurse said she had to teach the boy a few words.
“He was in agony.
I said, ‘He can’t breathe.
I’ll do what you tell me,'” she said, adding that she had him taught some of the sonido that the hospital had been teaching for years.
As a result, the boy’s condition improved and he began breathing again.
The boy has now been discharged from the hospital and is now at home with his mother.
The nurse, who asked not to be named, said she has been teaching sonido to other children who have lost their parents.
“As we teach sonido, we teach them how to care for themselves,” she said.
“This is the first time we have taught a child how to breathe, and we have also made a sonido in his room.
We’ve also taught him the meaning of ‘mai, mi, ma’.” More stories from India
