Heavenlight is a young student from Tanzania. She is the third child in a family of four children. She loves going to school. Heavenlight’s mother is a stay-at-home mother, and her father is a subsistence farmer who grows coffee and bananas.
Since May of this year, Heavenlight has been experiencing trouble breathing, especially at night. She 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 Heavenlight, which is scheduled to take place on October 19. Surgeons will remove her tonsils, hopefully relieving Heavenlight of her symptoms and helping her live more comfortably.
Heavenlight’s mother says, “I wish that my daughter will be able to sleep, eat and have a healthy life so that he may keep a good attendance in school.”
