Karen is a student from Tanzania. She is the youngest in a family of three children.
For five years, Karen has been experiencing frequent fevers and illness. This has caused her to often miss school and is affecting her academic performance. Karen was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils, which, if not treated, will cause her symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $633 to fund a tonsillectomy for Karen, which is scheduled to take place on February 8. Surgeons will remove her tonsils, hopefully relieving Karen of her symptoms and helping her live more comfortably.
Karen’s mother says, “Supporting my three children by myself has not been easy. Please help my daughter get the needed surgery I have no means of raising up the money needed to cover the cost.”
