It was with deep sorrow that we bid farewell to our favourite Hope Ward child Dennis Odong on the early afternoon of Thursday, August 6th 2009.
Dennis had been with us for more than a year, we did our very best to treat him and he was very brave in his fight against cancer.
Dennis had many friends on Hope Ward, he was a very special child.
In his last month the cancer spread very quickly to his spine and lungs eventually leading to his death. He was on very strong painkillers and we did our best to ensure he was comfortable in his last days.
We will greatly miss Dennis. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
