Gathoni is an 18-month-old girl from Kenya. She is the second-born in a family of two. Her mother is a stay-at-home mom while her father is a fruit vendor in a nearby market. The family lives in a two roomed rental house.
On July 15th, Gathoni tripped on boiling water while playing with her 7-year-old brother. Doctors have recommended a debridement to reduce chances of further infections.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Gathoni receive treatment. On July 20th, surgeons will perform a debridement and skin graft procedure to help ensure that her wounds heal without an infection. Now, Gathoni needs help to fund this $1,185 procedure.
Gathoni’s mother shared, “I just wish that I can find help for my little baby so that she a grow into a successful young woman in future.”
