Ajira is a young student from Tanzania. She is the first born in a family of two children. Her best subject is art, and she loves drawing and painting.
For two years, Ajira has been experiencing difficulty breathing and sleeping. She was recently diagnosed with enlarged adenoids, which are the soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Without treatment, this condition will cause Ajira’s symptoms to persist and possibly even intensify.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $609 to fund an adenoidectomy for Ajira, which is scheduled to take place on October 19. Surgeons will remove her adenoids, hopefully relieving Ajira of her symptoms and helping her live more comfortably.
Ajira’s father says, “We have not been able to take our daughter to hospital due to financial challenges. Please help our daughter.”
