Khun Nat is cured
Khun Nat from Bangkok’s biggest slum Khlong Toei is one amongst many others BE Health’s peer educators took care of. This young man worked in the harbour next to the slum and was infected by tuberculosis through his father and brother with whom he lived in the same shanty. When one of BE Health’s peer educators visited him during the very beginning of his medical treatment, he found a weak and sad man. His father and brother just died from tuberculosis and he wished to follow them. BE Health’s peer educator Nattapol visited him every week. He made sure Khun Nat took his medication and coached him until he was cured. Together with his youngest brother, Khun Nat started a few months ago his own business in T-shirt customization and feels happy to be alive.
