Danielle joined Watsi on March 23rd, 2018. 15 other people also joined Watsi on that day! Danielle's most recent donation supported Brian, a boy from Tanzania, to fund tonsil surgery.
Danielle has funded healthcare for 3 patients in 1 country.
Brian is a student from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of four children. He joined kindergarten last year. For four years, Brian has been experiencing difficulty swallowing and regular fevers. Frequent illness causes him to miss school. Brian was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils, which, if not treated, will cause his symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $633 to fund a tonsillectomy for Brian, which is scheduled to take place on August 9. Surgeons will remove his tonsils, hopefully relieving Brian of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably. Brian’s mother says, “This problem has made my son suffer a lot and made him miss a lot of class please help my son we have no means means of affording the cost.”
Loserian is a baby from Tanzania. For a few months, Loserian has been experiencing difficulty breathing. He was recently diagnosed with enlarged adenoids, which are the soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Without treatment, this condition will cause Loserian's symptoms to persist and possibly even intensify. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $609 to fund an adenoidectomy for Loserian, which is scheduled to take place on July 4. Surgeons will remove his adenoids, hopefully relieving Loserian of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably. Loserian’s mother says, “Please help my son if it’s possible.”
Siria is a child from Tanzania. He is the fifth born in a family of eight children. At home, Siria helps his family with day-to-day chores, such as herding cattle. Siria’s mother is a housewife and his father owns a small business of selling vegetables in the market. Siria was diagnosed with genu varus. His legs are bent outward. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, he complains of pain and has trouble walking. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $940 to fund corrective surgery for Siria. The procedure is scheduled to take place on February 9. Treatment will hopefully restore Siria's mobility, allow him to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease his risk of future complications. Siria’s father says, “Thank you so much for helping my son get this treatment. God bless you all.”
