Pain relief in Children’s Palliative Care – Wasswa’s story
In Uganda we meet a Wasswa, a child being treated by Dr Henry Ddungu (Uganda) with oral morphine to treat his cancer pain. Wasswa’s story was filmed in Uganda while Moon Shine were making the LIFE Before Death film but felt it was important to highlight that although Little Stars is focused on how palliative care is helping many children accomplish the extraordinary in the face of serious illness, there are up to 20 million children around the world who cannot access palliative care. Many of these children can’t access even basic pain relief.
