November 4, 2018

Samson is a student from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of four.

Samson sustained burns from touching an electrical wire when he was younger. He has very little functional mobility due to extensive contractures.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Samson receive treatment. On November 5, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help him use two of his fingers. Now, he needs help to fund this $608 procedure.
