Saning’o is a boy from Tanzania. He is five years old and in nursery school. Saning’o lives with his parents and his relatives in eastern Tanzania. His parents are breeders who keep cattle.

A few years ago, Saning’o was playing in the kitchen. He grabbed a piece of charcoal and burned his right palm and fingers. Although he visited a hospital and received treatment for the burns, he sustained contractures on his fingers. These are painful and restrict his ability to use his hand.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Saning’o receive treatment. On March 5, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery. Now, his family needs help to fund this $608 procedure.

“I will be very happy to see Saning’o get treated and continue with school,” says his father.
