Evenlight’s surgery went well, and she has fully recovered. She is now able to eat, breath, and sleep soundly without suffering from sleep apnea. Her health is progressing well and she is back to school already.

Evenlight says, “Thank you so much for helping me get well and be able to continue with school, I will to study hard and become a science teacher so that I can teach more doctors who will be able to help more and more children like they have helped me.”

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.”
