Evenlight is a young student from Tanzania. She is the first born in a family of four kids. Unfortunately, she lost her father when she was three years old. She is in her final year of primary school education.
For six years, Evenlight has been experiencing regular infections, trouble breathing, and sleep apnea. Frequent illness causes her to miss school. Evenlight was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils, which, if not treated, will cause her symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $633 to fund a tonsillectomy for Evenlight, which is scheduled to take place on May 17. Surgeons will remove her tonsils, hopefully relieving Evenlight of her symptoms and helping her live more comfortably.
Evenlight’s mother says, “I wouldn’t want my daughter’s condition to hinder her from her studies. I would love for her to be able to study without being sick and be able to pass and go to high school.”
