Robert Forster

Yaws I encountered in a highland village in 1974 had reduced the face of one middle aged man to a living skull because he had no nose and no lips. He also suffered from deformed hands so could do little to help himself. He was nursed, spectacularly well, by his immediate family. This would have meant constant spoon feeding and a carefully selected diet, because he found it impossible to hold liquids in his mouth. His body condition, which was good, was a overwhelming tribute to those who looked after him.
