Diana is a 12-year-old student from Tanzania. She is the first of four children in her family. Her father works as a farmer to support their family, and her mother takes care of their household. Diana is in the sixth grade and enjoys studying and playing with her friends.
Since she’s been young, Diana has had several illnesses due to her enlarged tonsils, which are prone to infection. She was advised by a local hospital that the only long term solution was to surgically remove her tonsils.
On July 20, Diana will undergo a tonsillectomy at our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre (ALMC). Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is asking for $633 to cover the cost of her surgery.
Diana’s parents are grateful for the donors’ support.
