Hasani underwent facial burn treatment.

Hasani had a successful surgery that has helped him have his facial wounds closed up to help him with a quick recovery after sustaining severe facial burns. Through this surgery, Hasani’s facial wounds will heal quickly and preventing further deforming of his face. He had a slight infection but he is doing well and continuing with daily dressing with silverdine cream.

Hasani’s mother says, “Thank you very much for helping my son have his wounds treated. I couldn’t afford his treatment cost but due to your help and support my son was able to be treated. I have nothing to give other than say Thank you and God bless you.”

Hasani is five-year-old boy and the first born child in a family of three children in Tanzania. Hasani has always been a hard working boy according to his father. He would help graze the cattle and look after his siblings when his parents were out working in their small farm where they grow maize and vegetables for their living.

Hasani has been burnt severely after being involved in a fire accident that has left him with very severe burns on the face. One fateful Sunday, Hasani woke up complaining of a headache so his father gave him pain relief medication and asked him to rest and not go out to graze the cattle while his father took the cattle out for grazing. His mother prepared breakfast for them and left the fire place with a few charcoal burning and went for church leaving Hasani and his siblings at home. His father returned at around one in the afternoon only to find Hasani with facial burns. His father says it took him time to realize it was really Hasani due to how severely he had been burned. No one knows how it happened, but Hasani’s grandfather says he just heard someone crying in the hut and went in to check only to find Hasani hiding in a dark corner crying in pain. He is in pain and at risk of infection.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Hasani receive treatment. On March 9th, surgeons will perform a skin graft procedure to help him heal and prevent infection. Now, Hasani needs help to fund this $711 procedure.

Hasani’s father says, “Please help my son get this treatment which will help close up his wound and help him heal.”
