Onesiforo is a student from Tanzania. He is eight years old and the second-born child in a family of two.
Last year, Onesiforo was sitting next to a fire. Suddenly, the cloth in which he was wrapped caught fire. He sustained burns across his body. Now, the burns on his hands have turned into contractures, limiting his ability to move his hand.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Onesiforo receive treatment. On August 7, surgeons will perform a skin graft procedure to help him regain motion. Now, Onesiforo needs help to fund this $711 procedure.
Onesiforo’s father says, “Please help my son if you can, he has stopped going to school due to the stares other kids give him. This other wound has refused to heal. If you can help us please do.”
