Medical student Tom Sweets saws off a patient’s cast while working at a Kenyan clinic. Observing the condition of the cast he says, “I didn't realize that keeping a cast clean is a sort of luxury we have in the U.S. This child had to help his mother with the garden because they needed food and she needed his labor. He had about a cup of dirt in his cast.”
