Hilda is a baby from Tanzania. She is the first-born child in her small growing family. Hilda’s father works in a garage, and her mother is a stay-at-home mother.
Since she was three months old, Hilda has been experiencing trouble breathing and has had frequent sleep apnea. Frequent illness has caused her parents to spend a lot of their time and money in hospitals. She was recently diagnosed with enlarged adenoids, which are the soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Without treatment, this condition will cause Hilda’s symptoms to persist and possibly even intensify.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $609 to fund an adenoidectomy for Hilda, which is scheduled to take place on May 3. Surgeons will remove her adenoids, hopefully relieving Hilda of her symptoms and helping her live more comfortably.
Hilda’s mother says, “Please help my daughter get this treatment so that she is able to eat, breathe, and sleep.”
