about Angellah's recovery.

September 15, 2021

Angellah is a 24-year-old student at university studying clinical medicine because she is passionate about helping the sick. She is the third born child in a family of five children, including three brothers and one sister. Two of her brothers are still in school and one works as a farmer. Her sister is studying towards a certificate in nursing and her parents work as farmers.

Six months ago, Angellah started experiencing backaches and abdominal discomfort. She could feel a mass on the left side of her abdomen. She took painkillers and tried local herbs, but her condition did not improve. Finally, she had a scan done and was diagnosed with a left adnexal cystic mass.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Angellah receive treatment. On September 16th, she will undergo a cystectomy at AMH’s care center. Now, she needs help raising $220 to cover the cost of her procedure and care.

Angellah shared, “I hope this pain will surely go and I will get healed after surgery so that I continue well with my studies.”

Alex

Alex is a social seven-year-old boy and the oldest child in a family of three children. His parents rely on small scale farming for food and other basic needs. Alex has been diagnosed with left varus and right valgus on his legs. When Alex learned to walk, his parents noticed his condition and they thought it would subside as he got older. The larger bone, or tibia, in his left calf is misaligned with the larger bone in his thigh, or femur, while the bone at the knee joint of the right leg is angled out and away from the body's midline. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, Alex experiences pain and difficulty in walking. He has not yet joined school, mainly because the only school in his family's village is far from home and he cannot walk all the way there due to his condition. When Alex and his parents visited his grandfather, he was deeply concerned by Alex's condition and brought him to the care center of our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), for treatment. Alex is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on September 10th. Treatment will hopefully restore Alex's mobility, allowing him to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decreasing his risk of future complications. Now, AMH, is requesting $880 to fund Alex's surgery. Alex’s grandfather shared, "I felt really bad seeing how my grandson‘s legs have been deformed. I know his parents are not financially stable and neither am I. I remember the team from your hospital that visited our village to educate us on treatable disability and the possibility of him getting treatment and I am hopeful that he will be well. Please help him."
