Sarafina is a girl from Tanzania. She loves science and hopes to become a doctor when she grows up.
When she was twelve, Sarafina was burned by a kerosene lamp. Her burns healed, but she developed a contracture on her right armpit, which is making it difficult for her to move her arm.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Sarafina receive treatment. On November 5, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help her use her arm. Now, she needs help to fund this $608 procedure.
Sarafina says, “Please help me get this treatment so that I can be able to help my mother with the house chores.”
