Dennis is a child from Tanzania. He started kindergarten this year. Dennis lives with his parents in the eastern region of Tanzania. His father is a mason, and his mother is a housewife who takes care of the family.
About three years ago, Dennis tripped a jar of hot porridge and sustained burns on both legs. He developed contractures on his right leg. Currently, the contractures inhibit his movement, making it difficult for Dennis to walk and play with his siblings.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Dennis receive treatment. On March 6, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery. When treated, he will be able to stretch his knee and walk without difficulty and pain. He will also be able to attend school. Now, his family needs help to fund this $608 procedure.
