February 27, 2017

Lynn is a five-year-old girl from Kenya. She is a very smiley child. She lives with her mother, brother, and grandparents. Lynn is currently in nursery school, and her mother works as a secretary at a high school.

In June 2015, Lynn and her brother were sleeping when they were both bitten by a red spitting cobra. Both were taken to the hospital and treated, but Lynn’s case was worse. The venom had spread to her hand, leaving her unable to properly use it.

Lynn has undergone previous surgery funded by Watsi, but she needs more treatment. On March 1, Lynn will undergo tendon and nerve repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center, AIC Kijabe Hospital. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is asking for $1,064 to cover the cost of Lynn’s treatment. Lynn’s family has already raised $206 to contribute to her surgery.

“I want to be a teacher when I grow up,” says Lynn. After surgery, Lynn will regain use of her right hand, putting her closer to achieving her dream!
