Susan is a five-year-old girl from Tanzania who loves to play. She is the last-born in a family of four children.

Five years ago, hot tea spilled on Susan and burned her. Watsi donors have funded two previous surgeries to correct the burn scar contracture on her right elbow. Now, Susan’s elbow has straightened and she can perform tasks independently.

On November 11, Susan underwent a skin graft surgery to complete her recovery process. This procedure should restore the appearance of her burned skin.

Susan’s parents are unemployed, so they need our help to fund this $780 procedure.

“We have been very lucky to get your help many times,” says Susan’s mother. “The last surgery has helped my daughter very much, and we hope this is the last treatment so she can rejoin her siblings back home.”
