Naserian is a student from Tanzania. She is nine years old and in second grade. She lives in a family of six people, with one brother and two young sisters. Her father is a cattle breeder, and her mother is a stay-at-home mother.

In December 2016, Naserian was burned by the gas stove in their home. Her clothes caught fire, burning her back and stomach. Her parents brought her to the hospital, where she stayed for three months. She now requires surgery to release the contractures that have formed around the burns. The contractures cause her constant pain and have prevented her from returning to school.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Naserian receive treatment. On March 5, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery. After recovery, Naserian will return to school. Now, her family needs help to fund this $832 procedure.

Richard

Richard is a farmer from Kenya. Father of six Richard is a small scale farmer. He plants maize and beans in his farm. Richard doesn’t have a good house to live in. He stays in a two room house roofed with grass. None of his children completed school due to low income in the family. The family has gone through a hard-time that they even lack food some of the days. Two months ago, Richard was involved in a road traffic accident and sustained a complex femur fracture on his left leg. Richard was brought to our hospital where he underwent a successful intramedullary nail femur surgery on 8/08/2019. He was discharged where he has been recovering at home. On his first surgical review, the surgeon realized that Richard is unable to get full extension of the femur. On further examination he realized that Richard had shortened femur and suggested that he needs revision surgery to fix his this condition for previous surgery done that was not successful. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On October 07, Richard will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him walk easily again Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure. Richard says, “I am really worried about the fate of my leg. I thought it was getting well. I have nothing to offer for my second surgery. Help me raise funds to make it possible and a success."
