Tamara joined Watsi on June 4th, 2014. 7 other people also joined Watsi on that day! Tamara's most recent donation traveled 1,900 miles to support Wilna, a baby girl from Haiti, to fix her cleft lip.
Tamara has funded healthcare for 2 patients in 2 countries.
Wilna is a seven-year-old girl living in Haiti. She was born with a cleft lip, which prevents her from eating normally and has resulted in malnourishment. Wilna is supported by a large and loving family -- her mother, father, and four siblings all hope for her to get healthy soon. However, her parents' only means of support is a small vegetable farm at home. They can not afford the surgery, and Wilna’s mother is worried for her daughter. Wilna has not been going to school because of her cleft lip. She says she is scared because she is often laughed at. Her father can not wait to see her return to school. $960 will pay for a plastic surgery procedure to repair Wilna’s cleft lip and allow her to eat normally. Let's chip in so Wilna can live a normal life, starting with school!
Meet Susan! Susan is nine years old and lives with her mother and father in Kenya. She enjoys going to school and wishes to grow up to be a teacher one day. Susan was born with bilateral knee contractures. Bilateral knee contractures are a condition that makes it impossible for Susan to straighten her legs or walk. Without being able to walk, she is unable to get to school each day. Susan’s parents are very grateful that they found our medical partner CURE International. The mother, Salome, says that she found out about this hospital through a pastor and believes it is the best chance her daughter has in fulfilling her dreams of being a teacher. “I want my daughter to walk,” she says. For $1,000, we can fund a bilateral knee release that will allow Susan to walk. Let's help fulfill Susan's mother's dreams, and help Susan walk easily!
