Juliana is a mother from Tanzania. Her daughter is in sixth grade and is looking forward to going to college. Juliana’s husband has retired but currently is working as a part-time secretary for a flour company.

Two years ago, Juliana started feeling pain in her right leg. She has been to several hospitals and used several medications, but the pain has continued. She has been diagnosed with right knee arthritis. She is in pain and is not able to walk.

Fortunately, Juliana learned about our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). At AMHF’s care center, surgeons can perform a total knee replacement to relieve Juliana of her pain and allow her to walk easily. Treatment is scheduled for July 13, and Juliana needs help raising $822 to pay for this procedure.

Juliana says, “I really wish to be able to get back to my day-to-day activities where I will be able to provide for my family and not experience such pain every time I am walking.”
