about Zawadi's recovery.

July 18, 2019

Zawadi is a baby from Tanzania. For seven months, Zawadi has been experiencing difficulty breathing and swallowing. Zawadi 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 Zawadi, which is scheduled to take place on July 18. Surgeons will remove her tonsils, hopefully relieving Zawadi of her symptoms and helping her live more comfortably.

Zawadi’s mother says, “We didn’t know our daughter’s problem was treatable we happy to hear she could be treated and be ok, but the cost is too high for us to afford please help us.”
