Yusuph underwent burn repair surgery.

Yusuph had a successful surgery that help release the skin contracture around his neck that was pulling down his lower lip making his face to be deformed. Through this surgery Yusuph was able to gain more control of his neck and lower lip. He still needed one more surgery to help him have full control of his lower lip but they have not come back. The medical partner reports that they have not been able to reach the patient so were unable to get a quote or photos.

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.”
