about Malacky's recovery.

March 4, 2019

Malacky is a student from Tanzania. He is the seventh in a family of nine children.

When he was five years old, Malacky was accidentally burned with hot boiling porridge. He sustained extensive burns to his neck and chest. He is not able to move his head freely.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Malacky receive treatment. On March 4, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery so he will be able to move his head freely again. Now, he needs help to fund this $832 procedure.

Malacky says, “I want to be able to eat without food coming out of my mouth as I chew, I will be very happy to look normal like my friends. Please help me get this treatment.”
