Madumekala is now a charming little girl. She always has a pleasant smile on her face. She is starting to look healthy and tall.

She visited the clinic at Karapitiya in Galle on the 11th of January. She will visit the clinic again on the 29th of this month. The efforts of Prof. Sujeewa Amarasena, Madumekala's Medical Consultant, are successful, including her regular visits and the continuous treatment. Prof. Sujeewa is very much pleased and satisfied with her progress.

Madumekala attends the school and she is now in seventh grade. Her mother takes more and more interest and care to continue the treatment for her daughter. She feels and has a great hope that one day her daughter will be a child of normal height. Madumekala has increased her weight and height.

She now weighs seventeen kilos (37.5 pounds) and her height is 114 centimeters (44.9 inches – 3.74 feet).
Before the start of the treatment, in March 2005, Madumekala's height was 100 centimeters. Real Medicine Foundation also donates nutritious food parcels to this little girl since her parents are very poor. It includes sustergen, grains, butter and cheese, Maggie noodles and fruits and vegetables. And her weight has increased.
