Evalyne is a young student from Kenya. She is the last born in a family of six children. Her father practices subsistence farming to support his family.

Evalyne was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. She needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction.

Evalyne is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her condition on February 4. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,327 to cover the total cost of Evalyne’s procedure and care.

After her recovery, Evalyne will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.

“I want to be a doctor when I grow up, to help children not to feel bad like me,” says Evalyne.

Joseph

Joseph is a young boy from Tanzania. Joseph is the fifth born child in a family of 7 children. He comes from a polygamous family and has 10 siblings inclusive of his step-siblings. He is struggling to write in his class one studies due to contractures on his right hand. He has to learn how to write with his left hand. When he was two years old, Joseph was spilt by boiling tea in his mother's hut. He suffered burns on his right hand and right side of his head. He spent several months in the hospital recuperating from the burns. Unfortunately, he healed with contractures on his right hand that has limited his ability to use his right hand. His parents are small scale farmers in Northern Tanzania. His father often traverses into Kenya to sell Masai herbal medicine to supplement income and meet the daily demands of his big family. The family has not been able to consolidate funds for Joseph's further treatment. Joseph was referred to our facility and after review, contracture release was advised. Upon successful surgery, Joseph's ability to use his hand will be regained. The family appeals for help as they do not have sufficient income. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Joseph receive treatment. On October 15, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to allow Joseph utilize his hand with ease. Now, he needs help to fund this $832 procedure. Joseph’s mother says, “Learning for Joseph is going to be every challenging due to his hand condition. Please help treat my son.”
