Kali underwent treatment for burn contractures on her hand.

Kali received successful surgery to release the tension in her right hand due to debilitating burn contractures. Although she was able to undergo treatment, a full extension of her contracted fingers was not possible and function was only partially restored. She will be able to return in the future to receive additional treatment to further improve her condition.

Though Kali and her father are saddened that the surgery did not fully restore function in Kali’s hand, they are thankful for the treatment and are keen to return home to their home and farm.

Meet 21-year-old Kali from Nepal. “Kali lives with her parents. Her father used to work in India to support the family back home and returned to their village only a few months ago. The three now tend to the farm to make ends meet and it is enough to keep the family going,” reports our medical partner, Possible.

When she was six years old, Kali burnt her hand while cooking with firewood. “She did not seek any treatment then and ended with contracted fingers. It is difficult for her to use her hand to do household chores and other activities like lifting, leaning and so on,” continues Possible.

Luckily, Kali has a path to recovery. With $220, we can help her receive wound treatment. “Kali will be put under anesthesia to manipulate her joints and release the contracted joints,” explains Possible.

Kali’s father shares, “I hope Kali’s hand is treated and that she can finally use the hand that she was born with.” Let’s make this happen!

Aziza

Aziza is a young student from Tanzania. She is twelve year old and the second born in a family of three children. She is currently in class six and her best subjects are mathematic and Swahili. She would love to be a teacher when she grows up. Aziza is being raised by one of her aunts while her other sibling are being raised by other relatives, this after their mother past away four years ago. Their father developed a drinking problem and was not taking care of the children, so their relatives decided to help the children since they would miss meals and they didn’t have anyone to wash their clothes or provide them with other needs. When she was three years old, Aziza fell on an open fire when playing with her two siblings. She suffered wrist burns and after a hospital stay, she was discharged to continue with dressing the burn at home. Unfortunately, she healed with contractures on her left wrist. In October last year, Watsi donors funded her her wrist contracture release and skin graft. She now needs her fingers released as contractures make it impossible for her to move her fingers freely. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Aziza receive treatment. On February 19th, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery so she will be able to move her fingers and hand freely. Now, she needs help to fund this $608 procedure. Aziza requested, “Help me have my hand fully released and be able to use it in my daily activities without challenges.”
