Nashivai is a student from Tanzania. She is the second born child in a family of four children.

When she was two years old, Nashivai’s clothing caught on fire. She was burned badly around her legs and pelvis. She is not able to walk well.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Nashivai receive treatment. On March 5, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to release the skin around her thighs to help her walk. Now, she needs help to fund this $608 procedure.

Nashivai’s mother says, “Please help my daughter.”
