Yusuph is a baby from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of two children. His parents are livestock keepers and small-scale farmers of maize and beans.
When he was one, Yusuph sustained burns on his right hand and face. He has developed contractures that prevent him from chewing.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Yusuph receive treatment. On November 5, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help restore his ability to chew. Now, he needs help to fund this $832 procedure.
Yusuph’s mother says, “I would be forever grateful if my son could get help on his treatment to correct his face and help him grown into a confident man.”
