Mwadawa did not receive treatment as expected.

Unfortunately, she did not undergo surgery as doctors discovered another condition that they need to treat first. When she is ready for surgery, she will be re-eligible for Watsi funding.

Mwadawa is a mother from Tanzania. She has four children.

Four years ago, Mwadawa was riding her bicycle when she was hit by a car. She was rushed to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with a knee injury. She could not stand or walk for several months.

Fortunately, Mwadawa learned about our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). At AMHF’s care center, surgeons can perform a total knee replacement to relieve Mwadawa of her pain and allow her to walk easily. Treatment is scheduled for July 13, and Mwadawa needs help raising $822 to pay for this procedure.

Mwadawa says, “I will be very glad when I will no longer be in pain and able to go back to my milk business. Please help me get this treatment.”
