about Parani's recovery.

March 4, 2019

Parani is a child from Tanzania. He is the first born child in a family of three children.

Last year, Parani fell into a fire and got burned around his chest and neck. The burn contractures limit his ability to move because of the tightening of the skin.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Parani receive treatment. On March 5, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help him move his head easily again. Now, he needs help to fund this $832 procedure.

Parani’s mother says, “Thank you very much for coming in and helping our son we had no means of affording his daily dressing he now needs a surgery which we can’t afford to please help.”
