Precious is a cheerful baby from Kenya. She is the youngest in a family of two children. Her father is a tin and metal artisan, while her mother is a housewife.

Two years ago, Precious was left unattended and was burned on her left shoulder and arm. Burn scar contractures have developed, tightening the skin around her burn.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Precious receive treatment. On October 1, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help her use and move her left arm freely. Now, she needs help to fund this $799 procedure.

“I will be happy to see my daughter having undergone a successful surgery,” Precious’s mother says.
