Little Pippie Kruger captured the hearts of South Africa last year, after she survived a burn accident and suffered third-degree burns over 80% of her body. She also lost most of her bottom teeth as a result of grinding her teeth from the pain she was going through, and her eyes were also damaged.

She is recovering amazingly well from her ordeal, as you can see in the photos. She has a new smile with the help of false teeth, and her new glasses will hopefully strengthen her eyes so she won’t need an operation later.
