Now, in the hands of experts, the slightest touch still seems to fill Budi with agony.
"We cannot even imagine how much pain this small baby has suffered," says Karmele L. Sanchez, IAR's Programme Director in Indonesia. "His eyes fill with tears every time he's moved by the doctors and he screams in pain. It's really amazing that Budi has been able to survive this long."
IAR reports that Budi is making a slow, steady recovery, thanks both to the care he's receiving and his own will to persevere.
"Budi is a very strong little baby and he is fighting very hard to survive," Sanchez says.
