Prisca is a young student from Tanzania. She is the first-born child in a family of two children. Prisca’s mother is a tailor, and her father is a motorcycle driver.
For four years, Prisca has been experiencing trouble breathing, eating, and sleeping. She suffers frequent illness, and this affects her school attendance and performance. Prisca 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 Prisca, which is scheduled to take place on June 14. Surgeons will remove her tonsils, hopefully relieving Prisca of her symptoms and helping her live more comfortably.
Prisca says, “I want to be able to continue with school with my friends. I am glad that this treatment will allow me to do so. Thank you all for helping me get treated.”
