Seng Hour is a 21-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She enjoys watching television, cooking for her family, and taking care of her daughter. In 2017, Seng Hour stepped near an open flame and burned her right foot and ankle. The burn has caused the skin around her ankle to tighten. She is unable to walk without support, and has difficulty fitting her shoe on her foot and bending her ankle. When Seng Hour learned about our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre, she traveled for six hours seeking treatment. Surgeons at CSC will perform a burn contracture release surgery to walk and move her foot and ankle easily again. Now, she needs help to fund this $448 procedure. Seng Hour said, "I hope that I will no longer have any pain in my foot and I can walk without any difficulty again."
Godson is a baby from Tanzania. He is the oldest child in his family. Godson has been diagnosed with a right inguinal hernia. He is at risk of developing complications. Fortunately, on April 11, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner's care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $539 to fund Godson's surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. Godson’s mother says, “Please help my son get this treatment so that he can be well and grow up healthy.”
