Flora is a baby from Tanzania. She is the only child to her parents. She is a very happy and active child. Flora’s mother is a stay-at-home mother, while her father is a motorcycle taxi operator.
For the past year, Flora has been experiencing trouble breathing and sleeping. Frequent illness has caused many trips to the hospital. She was recently diagnosed with enlarged adenoids, which are the soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Without treatment, this condition will cause Flora’s symptoms to persist and possibly even intensify.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $609 to fund an adenoidectomy for Flora, which is scheduled to take place on January 4. Surgeons will remove her adenoids, hopefully relieving Flora of her symptoms and helping her live more comfortably.
Flora’s mother says, “I am grateful for this opportunity of treatment that my daughter has got. I will be so happy when she will be able to sleep better.”
